The Gay Village, just east of downtown, is one of the largest gay districts in North America. Throughout most of the year, it’s a quiet and quirky neighborhood of gays, lesbians, families and cozy B&Bs housed in century-old duplexes and triplexes.
From June to September, the Village is a big celebration of diversity, where out-of-towners mix with locals, dine al fresco, shop profusely, and relax under the sun with a cocktail or two.
Here, lining Saint-Catherine Street East, are fashion and specialty boutiques, restaurants serving all kinds of cuisine, and a variety of venues at which you can dance the night away.
EC Montreal plans an outing to the Gay Village at least a few times a year so our students can explore this very cool and exciting district of Montreal!
