Les Premiers Vendredis

Back in a big way!

Two festive and gourmet weekends to satisfy all appetites!

There’s no doubt about it, the gourmet season is back this year with two weekends full of exquisite promises and entertainment for the whole family. Indeed, Les Premiers Vendredis is split into two weekends of three days each. In addition to the many booths and food counters, a new feature in 2021: The Desjardins Stereo, a huge “Boombox” in which DJs and musical groups will perform over the course of the three days.

This year, visitors will be invited to take part in a large gourmet tour starting with an SAQ aperitif zone with a huge terrace with seating for 200. There will be privileged access to thematic places such as a Japanese terrace, a small Vins du Portugal bar, an Archibald beer bar, a Mill’s Street bar, a Beam Suntory cocktail truck, a large Vietnamese terrace and a Mexican terrace. On-site, nothing is easier than to visit more than 30 trucks or to go to the coffee and dessert zone to taste, among others, the donuts of Crémy Pâtisserie or the classic Churros of the Mignon truck. 

In all, more than 40 restaurateurs will be present on the esplanade to offer their exclusive dishes. No difficulty to facilitate the circulation and the relaxation in an atmosphere of the greedy festival while avoiding the gatherings and the lines and by guaranteeing seats for everyone!

A more family-oriented musical and artistic program is planned between noon and 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, in addition to the Desjardins Stereo from 6 to 11 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

This event would not be possible without the collaboration of partners: SAQ – Desjardins – Archibald – Mill Street – Go Cube -Tourisme Montréal – Beam Suntory – CKOI – Vins du Portugal – Journal de Montréal
