We are super proud to announce that Marché des Possibles (MDP) is back for a 6th edition, from June 21 to July 28, 2019! Located, as always, at the intersection of rue Casgrain and rue Bernard Est, MDP is an eco-responsible event, with recycling, compost, biodegradable corn-based cups, and zero plastic waste.
Over the course of seven weekends, the Marché will offer themed cuisines from local artisans; a variety of musical programming from Montreal taste-makers with a focus on emerging musical talents; as well as a giant bean-bag toss, a mini-putt, a “risky play” adventure area for kids, plus assorted family activities and citizen initiatives.
