Welcome to the 2017 MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE festival.
Over the next 11 days, Montréal streets, parks, sidewalks and venues come alive with the creativity and ingenuity of contemporary circus arts. North America’s first international festival dedicated to the circus arts, this event offers breathtaking and awe-inspiring performances throughout the city. The festival is also an important meeting place for circus professionals from around the world to network and exchange ideas.
The Government of Canada is proud to support the MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE. We understand that investing in culture is investing in our economy, as well as in our future. Montréal is a world-renowned leader in the circus arts, one of the city’s greatest exports.
As Minister of Canadian Heritage, I want to thank TOHU and all of the organizers for making this festival such a success. Enjoy the circus!
The Honourable Mélanie Joly
Minister of Canadian Heritage
