The Sainte-Catherine Street celebrates!


On July 11 and 12, 2015 downtown Montreal will pulsate to the rhythms of Sainte-Catherine celebrates!, Canada’s largest sidewalk sale: a long pedestrian-only avenue in the heart of downtown Montreal, for two days only. Sainte-Catherine Street West will be closed to traffic between Guy and Bleury streets to welcome the massive crowds that will flock to the 18th edition of this event, which has become a Montreal institution.

The huge annual success of Sainte-Catherine Celebrates! attests to the fact that Montrealers and tourists alike just love shopping outdoors! It’s the ideal weekend to enjoy good times downtown and take advantage of incredible deals, restaurant patios, free activities and Montreal’s summer. Montrealers of all stripes are invited to take part in this festive weekend!

Participating businesses will be displaying their wares outdoors on Saturday and Sunday until 7 p.m., much to the delight of bargain hunters, with a huge variety of sales like at no other time of the year. Dancers, musicians, stilt walkers, radio hosts and deejays will entertain the public at different times of the day during the sidewalk sale to enhance the festive atmosphere. 

Positive comments from previous years speak to the fact that Sainte-Catherine Celebrates! is accessible, safe, diverse and visitor-friendly. It’s the perfect opportunity to take advantage of summer sales and downtown businesses.
