Events galore this summer including Carifiesta

Hey Montreal!
Summer is here.
Tuesday, June 21st is the official day that summer begins this year but to most of us it’s when the temperature begins to get warmer.
So let’s all get ready for some festivals and fetes and of course the big carnival.
There will also be the heat so soon it will be time to crank up the a/c and ready the grill for barbecues as well as backyard parties.
As we Trinis call it “liming” is back. Bring the music, drinks and let’s socialize with friends and family as summer creates an opportunity for us to build new and strengthen old relationships with each other after going through the many restrictions of the lock-down.
One thing is certain for the summer of 2022: there will be a lot of soca music in Montreal.
As the listing of all summer events unfold there’s no better way to enjoy this short-lived season than exploring all the Caribbean oriented events this summer.
So here’s a run-down on events coming up this summer and where you can find me as well in the month of June.
The Trinidadian Soca artist Viking Ding Dong will be performing at an event located at Caribbean Food Factory “Viking Ding Dong” & “Retro Party” on Saturday, June 18h 2022.
For those looking for an Ole Skool vibe, M.C.S.O. is having a Retro Party featuring James Bond, Dj Akin and more.
“Montreal Army Fete 6” Friday June 24th The return of Montreal’s only camouflage attire event on St Jean Bapiste Long weekend. This Army fete promises to surpass those of the past as it features Riggo Suave from NYC. This event will be held at the Studio 303, 9475 Meilleur.
