Past events at Place Émilie-Gamelin

Le Comptoir

Place Émilie-Gamelin, at the corner of Berri and Sainte-Catherine streets, is the place to refresh yourself this summer. First you have to try the ice cream made in Quebec at the Comptoir, a shipping container recycled into an ice-cream kiosk by the team of Steel Space and managed by Resto Plateau. It’s open Sunday to thursday, from 11:30 AM to 9900 PM and Friday to Saturday, from 11:30 AM to 9:30 PM.

The pool

Ice cream in hand, you can enjoy the all-new painted. More adventurous types can wrinkle their brows every day between 12 noon and 7 PM with giant chess and tangram games directly on the pool.

“Drive-in” movies

The ONF, the Cinémathèque and Les Grands Explorateurs will help choose films and documentaries from the cinematic work of the greatest Canadian directors. It’s a car-free drive-in, and a must-see for movie lovers. Detailled schedule in French is available here.


Not to mention a series of cultural events like pétanque, movies in the park, youth literature activities, slam-poetry performances, the Faubourg Saint-Laurent public market every Friday, new photo exhibition mounted by Mouvement Art Public (MAP) or the artistic performances of the robot Jackson Bollock.
