Lighting up winter!

The MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE fever is once again ready to take over downtown Montreal and the Quartier des spectacles, with an entirely reconceived and revamped site the thrill and surprise festivalgoers! The new additions include an utterly unique Tyrolean zip-line soaring over Ste. Catherine Street, an illuminated mini-village serving up fine fare, a massive interactive installation of multicoloured pastilles guaranteed to warm every heart, giant projection structures, beautiful, stunning illuminated installations, photo exhibits dedicated to Switzerland (the featured country of this 16th edition), and a new, long-awaited attraction: a super slide just for younger children! And don’t forget all the free outdoor shows—a least one different performance every day!—the daily DJ and VJ sets, the famous ice slide, games for the kids, the ferris wheel in the heart of the site, the countless culinary options offered by the famed Gourmet Stations… and a galaxy of lights, lights, lights! So much so that this 16th edition of MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE has been selected by UNESCO as a special event as part of its International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies!

Cercle Bell

You’ll have no trouble finding this new addition: it’s the illuminated spot dominated by the huge glassed-in windowed box in the heart of the Place des Festivals! And this year, MEL fans can even climb on top of the roof of the Boîte Bell for an incomparable view of the site!

You can also discover an interactive work named The Pool by Jen Lewin, this gigantic interactive illuminated ping-pong game is a participatory event activated by MEL fans, who walk run or jump from one pastille to another, turning the lights on and off and progressively changing the appearance and form of the piece. Beware: it’s insanely addictive—the kids will go wild for it!
