In Quebec, summer rhymes with festival! Hop lovers can quench their thirst at the Laval Beer Festival this weekend.
More than 35,000 festival-goers should be there for this seventh presentation, which takes place from July 14 to 16 at the Center de la nature to discover 85 local exhibitors, including 40 Quebec microbreweries.
Among them, a dozen are taking part in the festival for the first time, while the official beer, La Festivaloise, a cucumber and white hibiscus gose, is the result of a collaboration between Dieu du Ciel! and The Islanders.
Cider houses, distilleries, producers and food trucks complete the offer, not to mention a diverse cultural program to entertain the whole family.
In Montreal, head to Quai de l’Horloge du Vieux-Port until July 16 for the return of the Montreal Streetfood Festival.
Street food in all its forms, flavors and colors will be there with 40 on-site restaurateurs who will offer 150 dishes from cuisines as varied as those of Iran, Japan, Cambodia, Haiti or Mexico.
Will you opt for a paella (Paëlla Marisol), takoyakis (Imadake) or the ice cream of Ca Lem? A few cocktail bars will also be there to refresh you.
