Montreal high lights festival (Festival Montréal en Lumière) that started in 2000 turns the city, every year, to a giant colorful fiesta that lasts for eleven days. Diverse charged culture events are held: live music concerts, visual art shows, culinary events, exhibitions, etc… More than 800,000 visitors reach the city every year for the festival.
Due to the numerous visitors during the festival days and the high demand for tickets and accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms well in advance.
On the last day of the festival, White Night (Montreal All-Nighter Nuit Blanche) events are held. This is a night dedicated to culture, art, winter sport, food and music.
