TamTams tip: If you’re on Mount Royal today, look out for teams from the Monhood Montreal t-shirt company finding fun ways to give away some of their sweet neighbourhood tees.

The Editorial Magazine’s editor-in-chief Claire Milbrath exhibits work at Pied-du-Courant’s Galerie Éphémère. Outside 2178 Notre Dame E., 12–8 p.m., free

Bring your appetite to Centre-Sud for the Polish Festival at Parc des Faubourgs, with plenty of sausages and pierogies, cooking workshops, polka dancing and performances by Jacques Kuba Séguin, Robert Robert and more. Ontario & de Lorimier, 12:30–8 p.m., free

Haunted Montreal is hosting two special editions of its recurring downtown ghost tour today, to benefit a memorial bursary fund in the name of late CBC broadcaster Ange-Aimée Woods, who died a little over a year ago. Andrew’s Pub (1241 Guy), 2 and 8 p.m., $20

Film Noir au Canal is screening the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner (which, incidentally, is currently being remade after years of talk about it, by Quebec director Denis Villeneuve). Lachine Canal btwn Richmond & the Peel Bassin (map here), 8:15 p.m., free

Montreal singer-songwriter James Irwin is debuting a new record called Shabby Town live at Snack N Blues, accompanied by lots of familiar faces/names from the scene. This show, presented by Passovah, sadly doubles as a farewell show (officially titled a “bye bye for now” show), as Irwin will (sigh) be moving to Toronto. 5260 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., PWYC
