Jazz Festival - Montreal
Last Updated: 7th Jun 2012
If your tour happens to be in Montreal during the International Jazz Festival, count this as a huge bonus. 2 million visitors attend the 10 day event from late June to around July 10th. Many blocks in downtown Montreal are closed to traffic. And rain or shine, 5 free outdoor stages play host to variety of musicians from noon to midnight. Past musicians in the last 30 years included Diana Krall and Norah Jones, Pat Metheny, Johnny Clegg, Chick Corea, and Ray Charles.
