Old Port of Montreal closed overnight

The Old Port of Montreal will be closed overnight as of June 3

“Until further notice, activities will be shut between midnight and 6 a.m.”

The Old Port of Montreal announced this week that “until further notice, activities on the Old Port site will be shut between midnight and 6 a.m.,” which begs the question: Were there activities at the Old Port in the middle of the night during the curfew? Of course not — the French version of the announcement simply says that the site will be closed between those hours, though it’s not explained precisely what will be blocked off and where barriers will be.

Presumably this has been implemented precisely because Montrealers now have the freedom to roam at night, but with no nightlife establishments open, public outdoor sites like parks and the port are being used as gathering places.

The Old Port recently increased daytime activities with the reopening of terrasses at Marché des Éclusiers and Scena.
