This year, the ARRQ is establishing the Buvette Alsace Beaujolais with 300 shady seats where you can kick back and enjoy a cool glass of wine. There are also other booze stands peppered throughout the site, making it feel like the biggest terrace in town.

WHAT TO EXPECT

There’s lots going on at Les Premiers Vendredis – First Fridays besides food trucks. Expect street performers, DJs (from 4 pm to 7 pm) and as the evening moves on, local bands will take the stage until the evening wraps.

Lineups can be long, so coming early is a good idea. However, since the organizers expect big crowds, they’ve expanded the space this season so fingers crossed that things will move along more fluidly.

Les Premiers Vendredis – First Fridays attracted about 90,000 people last year so we’re talking a huge outdoor party. It’s actually the biggest food truck gathering in Canada! Entrance to the site is free.
