July 25, 2013 — Change is good. But new is even better, and that’s what the 23rd edition of the Black & Blue Festival is all about. From October 9 to 15, Montréal will be in full party mode with the gay event of the year, held during Canadian Thanksgiving/Columbus Day weekend.
The new venue for the Main Event is L’Arsenal. During the mid-19th century, this massive industrial space served as a shipyard where the construction and servicing of commercial sea-vessels took place. Today, the restored complex is an art centre showcasing Canadian and international contemporary works. L’Arsenal is the perfect fit for top notch DJs, festival activities, and dancing queens and kings from all walks of life. It’s also an appropriate setting for the inaugural interactive event known as the "LIVE ART EXPO.”
From the Launch Cocktail to the Jock Ball to the Presidents Cocktail to the Warehouse Party to the Official Warm-Up to the Main Event to the Recovery Party to the Closing Party, the Black & Blue Festival is an all-welcoming LGBT and allies happening that will knock your panties off.
Ticket can be purchased online or at Priape stores in Montréal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary.
