Montréal Complètement Cirque

You have to admit, Montreal is the place to be for all the best summer festivals, and that includes the Montreal Circus Arts Festival - Montréal Complètement Cirque (“completely circus” in English)

Today kicks off the second edition of this fun family event that will feature more than 100 circus professionals from across the world, performing traditional and contemporary circus acts like contortions, flips, juggling, balancing, clowning, flying and other surprising physical feats for the public.

The newest summer festival comes as no surprise since Montreal is quickly becoming the world capital for circus arts. The city is home to the famous Cirque De Soleil main headquarters as well as the National circus school.

Hosted by circus arts performance centre, TOHU, the Montréal Complètement Cirque festival runs from July 7 to July 24, and is perfect for some summer family fun with lots of free events, the return of Cirque De Soleil’s Totem, and much more!
