The Crescent Grand Prix Festival has been held since 1999 on Crescent Street in the days leading up to the Formula 1 Grand Prix. This street is located in downtown Montreal and is known for its nightlife, a considerable amount of bars, restaurants and shops. It becomes a pedestrian street to please tourists and thousands of racing fans who like to walk around looking at the beautiful cars on display. Several activities take place in the event such as the presence of pilots to sign autographs, performances of music, Djs that put a little more color to the festival, racing simulators, the pit stop challenge, etc. The neighboring streets collaborate to allow a little more space to the festival.
If you like cars and photos, you are at the ideal place. You will have the opportunity to approach the most beautiful cars in the world and all for free.
A nice way to participate in the festival is to settle on one of the terraces of bars and restaurants. Many have their terrace on the second floor so you will have a magnificent view of everything.
Go with family or friends, it’s a good event before the Sunday Grand Prix race.
