Circus festival in Montreal

Montreal doesn't just bring one circus to town: the city hosts an entire festival devoted to all things circus.

Now in its third year, the Montreal Completement Cirque event runs from July 5-15, 2012 and features dozens of performances in various locations. Many shows are appropriate for families including those by Sequence 8, performed by Les 7 Doigts de la Main; Jamais 2 Sans 3 and La Cuisine de Pan, which adds a dash of urban dance flavour.

Families can also check out the outdoor programs taking place across the city from Verdun to St. Leonard. Every evening, enjoy clowns and various artists at Place Emilie-Gamelin, 1550 Berri St. Tickets are now on sale.
