Longueuil hosts a digital arts and street food festival this weekend
It promises to be festive!

Are you looking for activities to do this weekend? The city of Longueuil is offering a very festive event! It’s the Lumifest festival which will take place from September 29th to October 1st in the heart of Old Longueuil.

This festival of digital arts and street food is a rendez-vous for families, couples and gangs of friends! The theme chosen for the 2022 edition is the 90’s, and we bet it will play on the nostalgia of many of us!

Among the various activities offered during Lumifest, we find cinematographic experiences, interactive installations, DJ parties, karaoke, musical performances and giant puppets. And to make the most of it, Saint-Charles Street West, where the Lumifest takes place, will be pedestrianized between Saint-Sylvestre and Saint-Jacques streets. You can leave your car at home since many bus lines will be free to get to the site thanks to a partnership with the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL). You can visit the RTL website for more information.

In order to help participants find their way around the various activities, Lumifest has joined the FEST application, which includes several other Quebec festivals. Via this application, it will be possible to consult the site map, discover the artists present and obtain all the information related to the event.

Ultra festive evenings will be offered to participants thanks to the collaboration of DJs who will ignite the outdoor dance floor of the Dancefloor Desjardins. Themes are proposed for each evening: Guitar Hero on September 29th, Jump Around on September 30th and Everybody Dance Now on October 1st. It’s a promise! An open-air karaoke will also be organized near St. Mark’s Park where courageous amateur singers will be able to sing along with the spectators. The lyrics of the songs will be projected on a giant screen, so 90’s nostalgics will have fun singing the hits of the era!

There are many other activities on the schedule, and it’s going to be very exciting! You don’t want to miss it!
