Summary of moments du cœur de l'île - summer 2022

This summer, downtown Montreal rediscovered its dynamism and liveliness thanks to Les moments du cœur de l’île, an initiative resulting from an exceptional joint effort by downtown partners and stakeholders. 

With hundreds of indoor and outdoor cultural activities every day, more than 30 festivals and events, eight Oases, new public spaces, original activities, terrasses, stores and restaurants, the summer was jam-packed with culture, and you came out by the thousands to enjoy it!

Led by the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, Montréal centre-ville, the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, Tourisme Montréal and the Ville de Montréal, the large-scale collaborative project Les moments du cœur de l’île brought together the strengths and creativity of the culture, tourism, business and retail communities to offer a unique summer destination.

The aventures du cœur de l'île brought Montrealers together and enlivened the downtown core with cultural events, welcoming Oases, urban design on pedestrian streets, special projects and a signature moment. These great initiatives allowed the public to participate in the revival of Montreal and to enjoy the wonders of the island under the open sky from June 4 to October 3, 2021.

Many thanks to the artists, creators and partners for their participation and to the City of Montreal and the Government of Quebec for their support. It was magical to see our festive, creative and united Montreal under the summer sun! Thank you all for coming!
