Welcome to our Winter Festival section | Winter Festival of Lights Niagara Falls | Festival du Voyageur | WinterludeLe Carnaval de Quebec
February 21–March 3, 2013
Drawing nearly 1 million visitors each year, the Montréal High Lights Festival (Montréal en Lumière) may well be the most popular festival in Canada, combining food, art, culture and lights. Its performing arts offerings traverse dance, visual arts and music.
The festival’s culinary delights will make every hog of Epicurus’ herd salivate, with its offerings of opulent wine and food pairings, thanks to the participation of top chefs and winemakers from around the world.
Arguably the most anticipated event of the festival is the eye-popping Nuit Blanche, which brings it to a rousing close. An all-night arts festival unto itself, Nuit Blanche morphs Montréal into an enormous, outdoor art gallery blazing with city lights. There are art installations and performance pieces dotting the squares and sidewalks. In addition, public art galleries and museums throw open their doors and welcome visitors throughout the night, most for free. If you only stay up all night once a year, this is the night to do it.
