Extravagant, community-based and non-commercial, the Phenomenal Parade is a biannual event, as well as a public and artistic occupation of public space. All are invited to take part in this grand, creative, colorful and vibrant event. Phenomena Festival has once again partnered up with Urban Fairy Patsy Van Roost — together, we would like to invite YOU to be at the heart of the parade.

Get creative, make a costume and join one of the seven thematic parade blocks. If you are looking for costume inspirations and would also like to share your creative process, join the different Facebook groups for each parade block:

Birds: hues of blue and violet
Flowers: hues of red and pink
Spirit of the forest: hues of green and brown
Steampunk: hues of black and bronze
Celestial bodies: hues of yellow and silver
Walking museum: all colors
Imaginary animals: all colors

*Please note: if you are a resident of Casgrain, Saint-Dominique, Clark, Saint-Urbain, Waverly, de l’Esplanade or Jeanne-Mance, between Van Horne and Fairmount, you are invited to take part in the Parade theme assigned to your street. We’ve sent you a paper invitation to your mailbox. If you have any questions, please contact lesfilles@electriques.ca.

The festivity will include street artists and marching bands, and will wrap up at the gathering point with a music show for all!
