Our Association has created a number of events over the last few years. Crescent Street has always had a special connection with racing and cars and is host to the LG Grand Prix Festival and the Molson Indy Champ Car series Festival, as well as presenting several car exhibition days such as Porsches, Corvettes and Ferraris. We also work closely with the local major sports organizations, producing events for Tennis Canada, the Montreal Alouettes, the Montreal Impact and Skate space, an extreme sports event. The street has also been host to events in collaboration with the Montreal jazz Festival and the Just for laughs Festival, as well as putting on a yearly Brazilian Carnival. The success and the reputation of our events are recognized on a local and International level and contribute largely to the reputation of Montreal as being a city of Festivals and summer entertainment.
