Festival International De Jazz De Montreal The gigantic summer music celebration features 12 days of non-stop entertainment, from noon to midnight, right in the heart of downtown Montreal. Several city blocs are closed to traffic, as right of way is given exclusively to pedestrians, creating a festive and secure spot with cafes and bistros, an art gallery, street performers and a musical park for children. It's the summer celebration par excellence for people of all ages and origins, a cultural breath of fresh air, and a place for incredible musical discoveries with influence such as JAZZ, BLUES, LATIN-JAZZ, BRAZILIAN, CUBAN, AFRICAN, REGGAE, CONTEMPORARY, ELECTRONICA...

Directions: Located in the very heart of downtown Montreal, the Festival site is contained in the four block radius of Ste-Catherine, President-Kennedy, Bleury and St-Urbain streets. The readily identifiable landmarks of Complexe Desjardins and the Place des Arts are right at the center of the festivities. Given that certain streets are closed to traffic during the Festival and that parking spots downtown are at a bit of a premium, the best ways of getting to the Festival are by metro (subway), by taxi or on foot.



All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
