Montreal Pride 2015 – Where to stay for Fierté Montréal?
Montreal is about to become a lot more colourful, as our vibrant city hosts the annual spectacular that is Montreal Pride 2015. This week long event is expected to be bigger and better than ever before, with organisers planning a collection of new surprises for this year’s community festivities. Over 400,000 participants and spectators both local and international, will be taking part in the largest LGBT celebration in the Francophone world.
Beginning on Monday 10 August, the party starts with Urban Forest at the McCord Museum, a popular free musical event that is now in its fifth year. Other highlights of the festival include a one-off performance from The Trouble-Maker’s Sister Show and a Mega Jump Dance event hosted by Ubisoft that aims to encourage thousands of visit to take park in street dancing with simple choreographed moves. With more than a 100 different culture and entertaining attractions planned over the week, organisers are promising something new to explore every day.
The Parade itself is the star of the event once again and will take place on Saturday 15th August. The biggest parade of its kind in Montreal, this year the theme is “Our Flag, Our Energy” in reference to the colour yellow so expect to see lots of cool yellow outfits along the route. The highlight will also feature a giant yellow doll that will meet and greet the thousands of visitors along the 2.6km route.
