PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TOUR WILL BE GIVEN IN ENGLISH

An entertaining walking tour through downtown Montreal that tells the story of jazz and its connection to the city from the 1920s until the foundation of the Festival International de Jazz in 1980. You’ll see what has become of former nightclubs such as Rockhead’s Paradise, the Rising Sun and Chez Parée, clubs that greeted well-known and lesser-known jazz musicians from here and from afar.

The tour starts in front of St-George's Anglican Church and ends at the Maison du Festival in the heart of the Festival's action. Old photos and music recordings are used during the tour.

The tour will take place rain or shine, so please come dressed appropriately.
