The Olympic Park is the ideal place to host gatherings of a few hundred to a few thousand people. Throughout its history, the Stadium has held a number of large get-togethers, from sports shows to conferences and religious gatherings. With over 56,000 seats, it is the largest covered amphitheatre in Québec. Access to the site is easy thanks to 2 nearby Metro stations as well as parking for over 4,000 vehicles. The site allows people to move freely inside and out, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for visitors. The Olympic Park is also the place for large outdoor gatherings. The Esplanade is made up of 9 sections on 4 levels, with various dimensions to accommodate different-sized events in an almost limitless choice of layouts. The levels also enable full access control to the site.
Novice and pro yogis alike were invited to the Stadium’s East Hall for colourful yoga sessions. Happy rhythms, body painting, and ultra-violet lighting created a magnificent experience and a sense of celebration.
