The Sud-Ouest de Montréal is organizing a gastronomic and craft festival at 3 sites along the Lachine Canal
From August 26 to 28, the Sudbest festival is back with a special edition featuring 30 merchants and a “culinary fair” in the Sud-Ouest borough of Montreal. This time, the organizers of the event have dreamed big since the next market will take place on three different sites: the Atwater market, the Sir-George-Etienne-Cartier park and the North Link site along the Lachine Canal.
You can attend for free and navigate easily between the three sites on foot, by bike along the canal or by taking one of the “tuk-tuk” shuttles available for visitors throughout the weekend.
Sudbest started as a way to spur economic recovery during the pandemic, but has become a neighborhood staple.
“This makes it possible to forge stronger neighborhood ties and break isolation to strengthen local life and live it together,” said Julie Poulin, marketing manager of the organizer of ephemeral events Les Survenants, in a press release.
“It encourages the social economy and offers a place of exchange for citizens allowing them to reclaim their neighborhood.”
You can expect great diversity in the performance lineup, including shows from Caity Gyogry, Rémi Cormier, Hermit’s Sound, Don Paco, Mr.Bowtie, Silicon Beats and Sabine Lamy de la Chapelle.
Food vendors will offer everything from Afro-Quebec dishes to Chinese food, Jamaican treats, artisan pies, poke bowls, smoothies and more.
As for the products on display, you will certainly find something to your liking. Whether you’re looking for craft beers, jewelry, candles or bohemian vibes, Sudbest has it all.
