Join us for one last memorable get-together in 2017!
(It’s free of charge too!)
2017 will forever be a year filled with fun, excitement, discovery and extraordinary encounters that will hold a special place in the hearts and minds of everyone who loves Montréal. This coming December 31 will be especially unforgettable and features three different components.
Marché Bonsecours & Saint-Paul Street between Bonsecours Street and Place Jacques-Cartier – Old Montréal
From noon to 6 p.m.
Inspired by Camillien Houde, the p’tit gars de Sainte-Marie, the Banquet populaire will channel the sharing spirit of Montréal’s former mayor. Meet us at the Marché Bonsecours, a truly historic Montréal hub for a truly festive feast!
Inside and outside, treat your taste buds to pea soup, tourtière, poor man’s pudding and sweets.
First come, first served. Until supplies last!
Storytellers onsite will be sharing some historic Montréal moments that took place on December 31. The young and the young at heart can enjoy entertainment and music shows. Tap your toes to the music of Yves Lambert and the traditional folk band Les Poules à Colin.

Starting at 6 p.m., the 375th’s La Finale brings its irresistible energy to the Old Port with Merry Montréal!

At 12:15 a.m., as Le Grand Décompte ends, the new year will roar to life as Champion et ses G-Strings hit the stage, spinning beats for the delirious dance crowd until 2 a.m. For this very special occasion, the lovely and luminescent Clock Tower Quay will also be transformed into a huge dance floor with giant screens simulcasting the New Year’s Eve Party’s full-wattage fun.

Say hello to 2018 as you watch the Jacques Cartier Bridge come alive in spectacular light, followed by a dazzling display of fireworks.
At 11:45 p.m., look on as the Jacques Cartier Bridge lights up to the music of a live soundtrack. This brand-new co-creation by Moment Factory and Atomic3 promises to give Montréal’s historic year an absolutely scintillating send-off!
When the clock strikes twelve, watch as fireworks burst high in the sky and merge with the bridge’s magnificent light in this grandiose entrance to the New Year. From La Ronde to Parc Jean-Drapeau to the tip of Île Saint-Hélène, they’ll be exploding across the night sky in a never-before-seen pyrotechnic performance!
