JOIN US AT THE VILLAGE DES NUITS D’AFRIQUE you’ll find the Festival’s Village at the Parterre du Quartier des spectacles and on the Esplanade Tranquille, between Ontario St. and St-Catherine St., just a stone’s throw from the St-Laurent metro station. So, come and experience African, Caribbean and Latin American music and cultures through an exciting array of free concert events and family friendly activities! The Village will be buzzing with activity every day, starting from 3 p.m. on weekdays and 1:30 p.m. on weekends, and you are invited to take part in the open-air dance workshops! During the daytime, concerts will be presented in turn on the two large outdoor stages: the TD – Radio-Canada stage, located at the Parterre du Quartier des spectacles and the LOTO-QUÉBEC stage, on the Esplanade Tranquille. Check out the cultural and hands-on activities, at the CABARET NUITS D’AFRIQUE or the CHILDREN’S VILLAGE, for example, then head over to the PROMENADE DES SAVEURS to savour some exotic foods from distant lands or, if you want to quench your thirst, to the BISTRO SAQ. And be sure to take a stroll around Nuit d’Afrique’s famous TIMBUKTU MARKET, just bursting
