My Montreal: Tanya Churchmuch

Piknic Électronik is a truly unique experience

From favourite events to hidden gems off the beaten path, My Montreal gets the inside scoop from locals about what not to miss when visiting the city. We kick off this series of six with Tanya Churchmuch, who handles the queer travel portfolio for Tourisme Montreal.

“Piknic Électronik is a truly Montreal experience and the perfect way to end a summer weekend! Every Sunday afternoon at about 5pm, just hop on the metro, exit at Parc Jean-Drapeau, walk over to the huge Calder statue and start dancing to some of the best electronic DJs in the world. Or have a drink or people-watch or just relax on the grass. Piknic is an amazing outdoor party that can be as chill or as exciting as you choose. Gay, straight and anything in between — everyone is there. I bring all my guests visiting Montreal here”
