VACAY THIS SUNDAY – PIKNIC STAGE @ OSHEAGA

This Sunday, August 3rd, Piknic takes a VACATION! Because there’s this small festival storming Parc Jean-Drapeau. Osheaga… you know it? Once more this year, the Piknic Electronik stage is back. You can attend the performances of Tom Trago, Laurent Garnier, Breach, Jon Hopkins and many others instead!

As always, just a reminder, you must have your Osheaga ticket or pass to access the site and the Piknic stage. Piknic’s season pass is not valid this weekend! .

Will we miss you? Yes. You'll miss us too. The next Piknic will be held at Jardins des Floralies, our alternate site, on August 10th. (...)

TOP TIMES FOR SUNDAY, JULY 27TH

A big Sunday, fully loaded in terms of programming and festivities. Here’s our Top 5, as exciting as an advent calendar five days from Christmas.

1) Installing the Decor

Once Mother Nature had agreed to get into the holiday spirit (she gave us a bit of attitude), we had the pleasure of riding out our beautiful Christmas decorations under the July sun. Pine trees, candy canes, a Santa throne, giant flakes... It was a big deal! The Camper's Christmas is something we take to heart. There was something in the air...

JULY 27th PIKNIC | CAMPER’S CHRISTMAS

You know the funny Quebec tradition that continues year after year, around July 25th, at campsites in the province? You know, the one that involves decorating golf karts, exchanging gifts, taking out the big holiday lights and installing them on the trailer? We’re talking about... the Camper's Christmas!

We await the date impatiently, a little like children wanting to open presents on the evening of 24. You’ll understand why, on July 27th, when we host a kitsch Piknic to the theme of a Camper's Christmas! (...)

B’BYE GLASS BOTTLES OF WINE

TELL ME YOUR TYPE OF TRANSPORT AND I'LL TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE

The STM customizes transport options for all types of piknicers. That’s how much they love us! Today’ we’re touring all the options for organizing a Piknic trip, an evening or a weekend.

The Occasional Piknicer

You don’t take public transit too often because, y'know, you have a bike and walk to get from Point A to Point B. Except on Sundays, because Sunday, you like to relax. You come to Piknic via metro with a lunch in hand and leave from where you arrive. Simple as that. You are: The occasional return-trip. (...)
