Saint-Germain Est will be pedestrianized between avenues de la Cathédrale and Belzile from July 15 to August 14 to allow shops and restaurants located there to create terraces on the street. Some producers and companies not located in rue Saint-Germain will also set up stands there to display their products.
The organizing committee claims to have considered a hybrid show this year. The event will last five weeks, like last year, but it won’t go as fast as it did before the pandemic.

However, Mr. Cloutier specifies that each merchant and restaurateur will suggest the schedule that suits him to provide his services, given the shortage of labour.
He adds that the easing of sanitary measures will facilitate holding the event this year.
People are in a hurry, we are frantic, and nervous, but for the right reasons. In years past, we’ve dealt with openings, closings, and we didn’t know if there was going to be another wave. We have reached the end of the epidemic, and we are getting back more and more to normalrejoice.
The entire program will be revealed in mid-June.
