Bonne Saint-Jean-Baptiste! Here’s what’s open and closed today

This week we celebrate la Saint Jean-Baptiste, but unlike previous years, Quebecers won’t have as many options when it comes to celebrating with big crowds. This year, we won’t be able to cram into nightclubs, visit street festivals nor we will be able to attend Le Grand Spectacle— and as with every other year, there are plenty of businesses and offices that will be closed for the Holiday.

That’s why, we’ve assembled a list of many things that are open and closed for La Fête Nationale!


What’s closed:


Canada Post offices

SQDC cannabis shops

SAQ stores

Permit counters and municipal courts across Montreal  

Most Montreal city offices

Most private sector offices

Shopping malls

Grocery stores and supermarkets larger than 375 square metres in size

Most sports centres and arenas

Montreal Science Centre


What’s open:

311, Montreal’s information hotline

Parking meters remain in effect on holidays.

Most dépanneurs

Pharmacies buy could reduce the hours

Dollar Cinema

Public beaches (selective ones, call beforehand)

Parc Jean-Drapeau

Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (hours might differ)

The city’s Botanical Gardens

Public markets/farmers markets

Some smaller grocery stores can remain open at their leisure, though hours may be reduced

Public swimming pools, although some are closed, so you should call 311 to confirm

Public transit follows their holiday schedule

Parking meters are in full operation

Several sports and cultural centres depending on the borough, but the city is asking people to call in advance before heading over.

The Sport Montreal 2020 centre will be open.

Garbage and other collection services will take place as usual in most boroughs, except in Outremont and Montreal North, where they’ll be postponed to Thursday. Meanwhile collections are cancelled on Wednesday in Ville-Marie.


Bonne Saint-Jean-Baptiste!
