Words from Quebec government

The Government of Québec is proud to support MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE. This event is an exceptional showcase for international circus artists and is helping to secure Montreal’s place on the world stage.

MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE also promotes the city’s recognition as an international circus capital. A unique and distinctive cultural event that attracts hundreds of thousands of festival-goers, MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE is a major tourist attraction with significant economic benefits not only for the greater Montréal area but for the province as a whole.

It is thus with great pleasure that we applaud the work of the organizers and volunteers who have made this extravaganza possible and are helping to make the circus arts accessible to all.

We wish you all a wonderful summer!

It's already the eighth edition of MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE! Montréal is pleased to have supported the first international circus arts festival in North America since its inception.

We are feeling especially festive as we celebrate the 375th anniversary of our city. I am delighted to see Rue Saint-Denis and Place Émilie-Gamelin become open-air circus rings featuring talented artists.

Their creativity, their humour and their prowess will surely amaze Montrealers as well as visitors, young and old alike.

This festival brings magic to our summer and is an important showcase for elite circus artists. We can be proud of this festival, which has become a highlight.

Montréal has long been recognized as a metropolis of festivals and culture, and shines among the world capitals of the circus arts. This facet of our city will certainly continue to gain renown in the years to come.

Long live the circus and long live Montréal!

Denis Coderre
Mayor of Montréal

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!

Minister of Canadian Heritage
