The Urban Forest
From May 20 to September 30, 2018
The Urban Forest is back for an 8th year on Victoria Street –pedestrianized for the occasion– between Sherbrooke Street West and President-Kennedy Avenue. Thanks to its urban furnishings, its public piano and the food trucks that will regale more than one visitor at lunchtime, the Urban Forest will without a doubt be the ideal place to kick back and relax in the heart of downtown Montreal!
A rich, diversified and completely free program of events will also be offered to passers- by all throughout the summer period.
Have you forgotten your lunch? The Urban Forest welcomes different foodtrucks on weekdays!
In partnership with the Association des restaurateurs de rue du Québec and Ville de Montréal.
