The Olympic Park is proud to present—for a third straight year—the exciting summer programming taking place at the Esplanade Financière Sun Life. Combining the return of past fan favourites with the addition of all-new events, the 2014 summer programming will once again reflect the commitment of Olympic Park to enliven the Esplanade through the themes of culture, sport, sustainable development, and physical activity.
As in past editions, the third summer season will take place over a period of five months, running from May until the end of September 2014. Programming will be marked by free events, open and accessible to all, particularly to those from nearby neighbourhoods. This year, the Esplanade Financière Sun Life will welcome a host of new events and activities, such as Exalto Park, the Montreal Country Festival, two concerts by the Atelier lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal, the Unicon unicycling world championship, and the finish line of the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie.
A number of can't-miss events from years past will also be making their return: the Smash mini-tennis centre, First Fridays, Montréal Complètement Cirque, the Jackalope action sports festival, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra (OSM), the Quartiers Danses festival, the Color Me Rad race, and the Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve Summer Carnival.
The Esplanade is proud to welcome more than 100 events!
