Montreal International Jazz Festival

Claimed to be the largest jazz festival worldwide, this event attracts thousands of visitors annually as it continues for more than a week, during which several streets in the downtown area are closed to traffic for setting up of concert stages. Activities include free outdoor performances as well as paid indoor shows.

The 30th such festival will be held in 2009 from the 1st to the 12th of July.
