It’s only fitting, in light of what’s shaping up to be 365 days of partying for Montréal’s 375th birthday next year, that we should kick it all off with what’s always the single biggest night of celebration in la belle ville, New Year’s Eve. We offer the following guide to help get you going in the right direction on the road to ringing in 2017.

Last year tens of thousands of celebrants turned up for the free concerts by top-tier Québec performers, the midnight countdown and massive fireworks display, as well as the all-night DJ dance party afterward. The free concert and party gets going at 7 pm. (And let’s put it out there right away that getting around will be a breeze on the Eve since the metro – Montréal’s subway – will be open all night.)
