We can meet on the Hyatt Rooftop everyday at 7pm, have a drink while deciding which shows to see together. Named the largest jazz festival in the world by the 2004 Guinness Book of World Records, the Montreal Jazz Festival attracts about 2.5 million visitors every year, according to festival organizers, and offers hundreds of concerts over 11 days. The 2019 Montreal Jazz Festival runs from June 27 to July 6, book-ended by pre-opening shows and post-fest closers. The best part? Roughly two-thirds of the fest's concerts are free! Family-friendly activities geared towards kids are also generally free. Everything From Jazz and Worldbeat to Rock and Pop Covering the gamut of jazz genres since its debut edition in 1980, the fest also features related genres such as blues, Latin jazz, soul, Brazilian, Cuban, African, rhythm and blues, reggae, and electronica. Rock, pop, and just about every other genre end up on the roster too, irking some purists who complain that the Montreal Jazz Festival isn't jazzy enough. However, there's something to be said about keeping an open mind. Indeed, it's the non-jazz shows that have arguably made the Montreal Jazz Festival as big as it is. Sharp-eyed observers might also point out that crowds wouldn't be in the seven figures without all of those free, taxpayer-funded shows coupled with the festival's auspiciously centralized location. If pure, unadulterated jazz is all that you seek, then head to Montreal's hottest jazz clubs either before, during, or after the festival. International talent fills Montreal during fest time, and world-class jazz is guaranteed for every musical taste, whether you're looking for freestyle, standards, covers, or new compositions. Free Outdoor Shows A blessing to music fans on a budget, hundreds of free shows are held at the Montreal Jazz Fest's downtown hub. A full scheduled line-up of music will make all jazz lovers rejoice. Stevie Wonder performing at the opening outdoor concert at the 30th Montreal International Jazz Festival on June 30, 2009 Rick Friedman/Getty Images Memorable Montreal Jazz Highlights The Montreal Jazz Festival has been the site of an almost endless roster of best-of moments and memories, forged by an eclectic bunch of A-listers, up-and-comers, and jazz icons. Among the fest's most lauded performers: Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Charlie Haden, Ray Charles, B.B King, Oliver Jones, Aretha Franklin, and Pat Metheny. There were unforgettable Prince appearances, a free outdoor Stevie Wonder show, and Tony Bennett gracing audiences year after year. New Orleans piano icon Allen Toussaint was a regular at the fest, where Diana Krall was first discovered and Earth, Wind & Fire got crowds dancing 40 years after their first hits were released.

Much like American Independence Day on July 4, Canada Day on July 1 celebrates the birth of a nation with parades, fireworks, and parties all across the country. If you're going to be in Montreal on Canada Day, you won't want to miss the Défilé de la Fête du Canada this year. Location and Transportation To attend the 2019 Canada Day Parade in Montreal, just show up at the corner of Fort and Ste. Catherine streets where the parade starts. The parade ends at Place du Canada, at the corner of Ste. Catherine and Peel where yet more festivities await Montrealers. In order to get to the start of the parade by public transit, you can get off at either Guy-Concordia or Peel Metro. Alternatively, you can get out at other stations along the parade route using a map of the Montreal Canada Day Parade. The First Canada Day Parade in Montreal Montreal began hosting a Canada Day Parade in 1977, just months after the separatist political party, Le Parti Québécois, first came to power back in November 1976. Initiated by Montreal cardiologist Roopnarine Singh, the first Canada Day Parade in Montreal was no more than a few cars tooting their horns around the city, a pale comparison to Canada Day festivities outside of the province and a conspicuous reflection of Quebec's political division: the sovereigntists versus the federalists. However, this didn't stop the parade from happening. The size of the parade and public participation grew as several of Montreal's ethnic communities began to get involved. As a result, the parade also began to feature representations of cultures and traditions from all over the world including China, Germany, Armenia, India, Hungaria, Iran, Greece, Italy, Turkey, Indonesia, Poland, the Philippines, Denmark, Malaga, Holland, Sri Lanka, Ireland, and Japan. Celebrations and Events on Canada Day After the parade each year, Place du Canada hosts a special event featuring a giant cake, live shows, face painting, and other entertainment. Taking place at Square Phillips from 1:30 to 2 p.m., you can enjoy a slide of a 4-foot by 8-foot cake in honor of the holiday, which is expected to feed up to 2,500 people. Once you've grabbed a slice (and a free cup of water), stick around for the performances, including colorful dragon dances courtesy of Montreal's Chinese community. There will also be inflatable toys for kids on site and a variety of other activities and games available free of charge until around 4 p.m. To end the evening, head up to Mont Real for the best view of the fireworks over the city. Alternatively, additional events take place throughout the day and evening at the Jacques-Cartier Pier in the Old Port of Montreal for the city's official Canada Day Celebration. The event includes a 21-gun salute to the nation, a variety of workshops and performances, and several different food, arts, and crafts vendors. (Ref: trip savvy)
