2017 Highlights

A word from our spokespersons


Hello everyone!

It is with immense pleasure and pride that we join forces with A Taste of the Caribbean to present its 18th edition, which will be held from June 21 to June 25 at the Clock Tower Quay in Montreal’s Old Port.

Always faithful to its mission, the A Taste of the Caribbean festival is offering free activities for the whole family, including kids’ workshops, cooking and mixology demonstrations for the more mature, outdoor concerts, restaurants with traditional and fusion Caribbean flavors—the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of the Caribbean.

This year, we are taking you on a journey to discover a sugarcane based product: rum! Since 1650, rum has been telling a multifaceted story which we will share with you over the course of five days of tastings, recipes, desserts, cocktails, master classes, and more. The Rum Edition will be THE festival to kick off the summer.

We invite you to come taste the culture of the Caribbean during St-Jean-Baptiste weekend and celebrate everything that makes Montreal so great!


Bruny Surin is a native of Cap-Haïtien, Haïti. He won the gold medal for Canada at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games in the 4×100 metre relay race. Historically, this victory will remain as one of the most remarkable of all time.
