Here at StudEtree, summertime in Montreal is our favourite time of the year, especially because of all of the amazing events which take place during this beautiful season. But you know what makes an event even better? When it’s free.
Here are 5 free events in Montreal we’re looking forward to this July:
Musical Sundays at the Mount Royal Chalet
Les amie de la montagne will present a musical Sunday afternoon on Sunday, July 10th at 3PM – 4PM, featuring Jazz for a Sunday Afternoon – Project Chopin with Guillaume Martineau (piano), Eric Legacé (cello) and Mark Nelson (drums).
This summer, “lend your ears” to Repercussion Theatre as they present an all-female production of William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, which runs from July 7th to August 4th. All shows, excepting July 9 – McGill University, start at 7PM.
Montreal International Jazz Festival
Fronted by five voices, Nomadic Massive is a polyglot combo that raps in English, French, Spanish, Créole and Arabic, combining samples and traditional influences to enhance tracks steeped in soul, reggae and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. It’s a joyously explosive hip-hop crossbreed that always gets the crowd jumping. They will perform on July 5th and 6th at the the Savoy de Métropolis from 12AM to 3AM.
Timber Timbre is a Canadian folk music led by the wonderfully talented Taylor Kirk. Their sound has been described as “beautifully restrained blues from an alternate universe”, which creates an atmosphere that is cinematic and spooky. They will perform outdoors at the Berge des Baigneurs in Laval on July 9th from 9:30PM to 11:00PM.
Note: the STL will provide free shuttle buses between metro station Montmorency to the Berge des Baigneurs at 6:30PM and 7:30PM and between the venue back to the metro station at 11:30PM after the show.
Montreal Just For Laughs Festival
After 420 shows and 372 000 tickets sold, Sugar Sammy presents You’re Gonna rire for one last time. Custom-made for Montreal, the show brings together Francophones and Anglophones. Sugar Sammy invites people of all origins to come and laugh at this free grand gathering at the Place des Festivals on July 28th at 9PM.
