History of the Quartier des Spectacles
For over 100 years, the area of the Quartier des Spectacles has always been a hot spot for entertainment and cultural events. It wasn’t until 2003 that the area was defined by the City of Montreal after its push to create a welcoming area to host performances and other cultural events and activities.
The vision was to “live, learn, create and entertain downtown”.
Since then, it has grown into an astonishing kilometre of nothing but diverse entertainment where there is something for everyone to appreciate.
