Montreal cultural events cancelled

All Montreal cultural events cancelled until July 2

Bye-bye June.

Mayor Valérie Plante announced on Twitter this afternoon that all planned cultural events in Montreal are officially cancelled until July 2.

This follows a string of announcements about all kinds of festivals and events being cancelled, from the Fringe and Metro Metro to the Jazz Fest, Francos and, just today, the Grand Prix and Montréal Complètement Cirque. By contrast, the Just for Laughs festival, which normally takes place in July, chose to postpone until September. ■
