Place Émilie-Gamelin

Les Jardins Gamelin open for a 5th season!

Les Jardins Gamelin will once again host a rich and varied roster of cultural activities, every day and night of the week. Thanks to an engaging design by Pépinière & co, including an outdoor restaurant, Les Jardins Gamelin will be a great destination for al fresco lunches, extended after-work drinks and lively weekends for the whole family.

Urban agriculture is a key feature of this warm-weather incarnation of Place Émilie-Gamelin. The Sentier Urbain organization is responsible for the gardens, vegetable plots and other greenery that will enliven the space for the season.

Site preparation

The reorganization of the site will begin on May 10th. In order to carry out the work safely and efficiently, Place Émilie-Gamelin will be closed to the public until the May 30th. The northern section of the space, where meals are distributed to homeless people, will remain open throughout the setup period.

Place Émilie-Gamelin will be closed to the public on May 10th from 5 p.m. until May 30th .

Sound checks

In order to ensure high production values, the event team must run sound checks. These will take place at various times during the summer.

Sound checks - Opening night: Sound checks will be made on Thursday May 30th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Please note that the purpose of these sound checks is, among other things, to test the maximum capacity of the equipment. The volume will therefore be higher than during the event. Also note that during sound checks, volume levels will not be at the maximum at all times but will change frequently.

Site Schedule

The opening night will be on Thursday, May 30th from 5 p.m. to 23 p.m.

Please visit the website of Quartier des spectacles for a detailed schedule of activities taking place outdoors.
