Display allAccess to the site

Set in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles in downtown Montreal, the FrancoFolies de Montréal site occupies the quadrilateral area bordered by St. Laurent Boulevard and De Bleury Street from east to west, and Ste. Catherine Street and President-Kennedy Avenue from north to south. By virtue of their central location amid the festivities, Complexe Desjardins and Place des Arts are useful landmarks.

With some streets closed to vehicle traffic and parking in the downtown core relatively limited, people are encouraged to make their way to the FrancoFolies site on foot, by taxi or by public transit.

Those driving to the festival are urged to consult the map of street closures for nearby parking areas and related access routes.

Bicycles, skateboards and in-line skates are also excellent means of transportation. However, they are not permitted on-site for security reasons. We invite you to deposit them in one of two bicycle parking areas set up specially for festivalgoers.
