Jimmy Cliff

NDG Arts Week hosts the All the Rage Craft Fair, a sale of fine handcrafted clothing and accessories by local artisans and designers, with a batch of quality vintage items too. Le Manoir (5319 Notre-Dame-de-Grâce), 12˗5 p.m.

Never been to the Reggae Festival? What better time to check it out than today, when reggae’s first superstar Jimmy Cliff headlines. Quays of the Old Port, 12˗11 p.m., $45

It’s the colourful climax of Fierté Montreal Pride’s week of festivities: the annual LGBT parade. Keep an eye on awkward politicians get grinded, and Pervers/Cité’s anti-capitalist antics. Moving east from Guy and René-Lévesque at 1 p.m., destination Place Émilie-Gamelin (T-dance)

What better way to wrap Italian Week than with dessert. Though we’re unsure whether (or how much) we can chow down, the tiramisu contest at least suggests “free cake.” Corner of St-Laurent and Shamrock, 2 p.m.

Hitchcock’s Vertigo was recently declared the best film of all time in a critics’ poll. Catch it in a sweet 35mm print this week at Cinéma du Parc. 3575 Parc, 9:15 p.m., $11.50
