This weekend brings one of the unofficial kickoffs to Summer in Montreal with the F1 Grand Prix de Canada!

Get ready for street closures in the heart of downtown, tons of tourists in town and all the celebrity watching you can handle over four days.

The Grand Prix has long been a major attraction for A-List celebrities converging on our fine city for a weekend of partying, fine dining and shopping.

Formula 1 weekend kicks off on Thursday with the opening of the Crescent Street Festival. Four days of concerts, partying, pit stop challenges and people watching. Tons of local DJ’s and bands to keep the party going through the entire weekend.

Friday night the number one party to be at (if you can score a ticket) is the Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ball at the Ritz Carlton. This year’s theme will be fueled by the energy of Havana. Exquisite cocktails and a musical performance by Issac Delgado y Orquesta.

Saturday night brings the second ever Maxim Grand Prix Party at Windsor Station with performances by Diplo and DJ Ruckus⁠ and even more celebrities, pro athletes and influencers for you to rub shoulders with.

There’s also a race happening at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Practice sessions on Friday, qualifying on Saturday and the main event race on Sunday at 2pm.
