Montreal is celebrating all things Italian this August with their 18th annual Italian Week!
Montreal’s Italian Week is a big event that attracts 500,000 visitors each year. This 10 day festival has something for everyone. It’s a celebration of the Italian-Canadian community.
There will, of course, be a lot of amazing Italian food. You can wander though Little Italy sampling authentic food and drinks. There will even a tiramisu contest!
There will be live outdoor concerts with music for everyone – some classic music, some pop and some opera.
If you like fashion, there will be a fashion show during Italian Week featuring Italian designers.
Like Italian cars? Don’t miss the parade of Ferraris during Italian Week.
