Experience what life was like in New France, in the area around the Museum and in Place Royale

Pointe-à-Callière's main event for 25 years, the Public Market is a magnificent historical re-enactment that is not to be missed. 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. There's no doubt you'll feel like you've been instantly transported back to the days of your ancestors.
