Just for Laughs

Montreal’s Summer Festivals

Montreal is alive at the worst of times, and at the its best, there’s no other city on the planet quite like it. The famous Just for Laughs and International Jazz festivals attract the best comedians and musicians around, the neighbourhood patio bars bursting with life and culture. Over the summer, the city bursts with free performances, festive parades, concerts and exhibitions. We can use all the laughter and music we can get.
