Words from our partners

Words from Quebec government

Words from Quebec government

The Gouvernement du Québec is proud to support the MONTRÉAL CiRQUE FESTIVAL, an event that contributes to Montréal’s cultural development and helps position the city as the circus arts capital of the world.

In constant evolution since its very beginnings, the festival continues its growth again this year, with its Quartiers complètement cirque emerging all over Montréal. The event is still charming the public and drawing in many tourists from out of town. The only international contemporary circus festival of its kind in North America, the MONTRÉAL CiRQUE FESTIVAL is an exceptional national and international window for Québec artists and a springboard for the circus succession.

Happy festival to all! Martin Coiteux Minister of Municipal Affairs and Land Occupancy Minister of Public Security Minister responsible for the Montréal region

Marie Montpetit Minister of Culture and Communications Minister responsible for the Protection and Promotion of the French Language

Mayor’s message : Valérie Plante

Welcome to the MONTRÉAL CiRQUE FESTIVAL in 2018!

I would like to extend my best wishes to the organizing team of this festival that will light up our entire city for the 9th consecutive year.

This landmark event breathes magic into our summer and has become a source of pride for Montréal. It contributes to the international visibility of circus arts, an industry that is so typical of our city.

Montréal is known internationally not only as a metropolis of festivals and culture, but also as the world capital of circus arts, thanks to its rich and dynamic ecosystem.

Our city has been proudly supporting North America’s first international festival of circus arts, since its beginnings, back in 2010.

As it overtakes the city for 10 days, the MONTRÉAL CiRQUE FESTIVAL has also become a wonderful tourist attraction, as shown by the 40% increase in attendance in 2017.

I would like to invite Montrealers to attend in great numbers this year. Aside from indoor shows, the entirely free outdoor programming offers a myriad of circus activities for the entire family to enjoy. It is a must-see this year.

Enjoy the circus!

Mayor of Montréal

MONTRÉAL COMPLÈTEMENT CiRQUE is taking the city by storm for the ninth year in a row. In addition to performing in theatres, local and international artists will turn public spaces into an open-air circus. This event echoes Montréal’s other major cultural celebrations by inviting people of all ages to experience the city’s electrifying creativity and festive atmosphere.

Tourisme Montréal is proud to partner with this high-flying festival, which draws tourists and solidifies Montréal’s reputation as a global hotspot for circus arts.
