After two years of absence, Montreal’s Christmas Market will mark its comeback in the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles. Set up along Sainte-Catherine Street West and Place des Arts, small decorated and illuminated chalets will welcome local artisans, producers and restaurateurs starting November 21. Do you want to exhibit your products? Submit your application now.
Signature event in the South-West of Montreal, the Christmas Village will return again this year for its 5th Edition, every weekend starting Thursday, November 26 through Sunday, December 20. Applications are now open!
It is absolutely possible to send a request to participate in one or more weekends at one of our events.
We favor diversity and seek to offer visitors a unique experience specific to each event. However, it is possible to occupy a chalet at several of our events if your products are original and popular with the general public.
In the event that the Public Health closes all events and gatherings in Montreal, we will allow exhibitors to either be reimbursed for the number of days canceled minus a 20% fee, or to automatically carry over the canceled days to next year, regardless of the rental cost set in 2021.
As this challenging year draws to a close, initiatives such as the Great Enchanted Tour of Montreal, which inject a little magic into the daily lives of Montrealers, are more than welcome.
Families, merchants, artisans and artists will all be able to celebrate the magic of the Holidays together. In doing so, everyone will help support local commerce, Montréal’s cultural scene, the vibrant spirit of our creators and the revitalization of our economy.
The Great Enchanted Tour will allow young and old alike to enjoy the Christmas Village at the Atwater Market, the Winter Gardens at the Quartier des spectacles, as well as other surprise events all over the island of Montréal.
With the arrival of cold weather, I’m delighted that these lively installations will be set up to warm our hearts, offer a festive atmosphere to the population, and celebrate the northern nature of our metropolis.
I offer my best wishes for success to the organizers and artisans who make this event possible. At the same time, I salute their ability to adapt in the face of the many challenges posed by the pandemic.
I invite Montrealers to enjoy the Great Enchanted Tour in large numbers and I wish you a very happy holiday season
