Montreal is known for hosting some of the best festivals in North America namely the Festival Just for laughs, the Francofolies celebrating French culture and the world renown Jazz Festival. Each year thousands upon thousands flock to Montreal to attend these festivals which have become real cultural attractions over the years.
The Fashion and Design Festival is celebrating it's 10th year anniversary. With up to half a million visitors each year, the 4 day event is something to look forward to. We are in luck this year since the fashion event just happened to coincide with our last minute escapade. In fact the festival taking place on McGill College Avenue, one of Montreal's hippest blocs, will be going on from August 3 - 6. Seventy-five fashion labels are on the menu including Denis Gagnon, Helmer, Barila and Jean-Paul Gaultier.
Speaking of menu here's something for you to munch: Montreal culinary scene is to die for! More on that next week!
