Crescent Street, for decades has been the destination for race fans during the Grand Prix weekend. This downtown street is the epicenter for nightlife in Montreal and home of the Crescent Street Grand Prix Festival.
Ever since 1999, the Festival has transformed the street into a free venue for race aficionados, tourists and Montrealers to celebrate the biggest race in Canada. Every night, there are live performances on the main stage by top Canadian bands. The stage also draws crowds with driver appearances, autograph sessions and DJs mixing the hottest music all day long. The stage acts are just the beginning of the entertainment, as the Festival brings numerous activities such as racing simulators, racecar displays, the pit stop challenge, etc.
In 2019, the festival will be celebrating its 20th anniversary! Like in 2017 and 2018, the event will be held on Crescent Street, but also on de Maisonneuve Boulevard too, between Bishop Street and de la Montagne Street. This configuration makes the festival more accessible for attendees and more spacious for our partners. Moreover, it allows the stage to be opened on both streets, for more people to enjoy the live performances!
We are looking forward to see you for another successful edition of the Crescent Street Grand Prix Festival. Do not miss the 20th anniversary of the festival, as we launch summer in Montreal, June 6, 7 and 8, 2019.
