Free outdoor event
Place Royale, Old Montréal

Pointe-à-Callière's Public Market, one of the Museum’s main events, is a magnificent historical re-enactment where you can experience what life was like in New France in Place Royale in Montréal. Come along as musicians, artists, and some one hundred historical figures reproduce period scenes with stunning authenticity. A military regiment and an Amerindian encampment are also part of the festivities. It’s a great opportunity to discover local producers and do some shopping while being transported back to the days of your ancestors!

Saturday, August 24: 10 am to 7 pm
Sunday, August 25: 10 am to 6 pm

Some streets will be closed for the Public Market. If you live in the nearby, we invite you to consult the detailed information:
