Tips from locals
Every Sunday, Montrealers take to the foot of the mountain with a blanket, food, and drink to bask in the sun. Around the George-Étienne Cartier Monument, hundreds gather to drum to the same beat. Tam Tams is a must-do for tourists and locals alike during the warmer months.
You must visit this place to see this amazing statue. But I am asking you to go visit this side of the Mont-Royal park. If you go on Saturday or Sunday, you will also get to see free music crowd called Tam-Tams.
Home of the famous "mountain." Also, where the weekly free music festival occurs: "One of the biggest is Tam-Tams, the festival of LARPing, drumming, dancing, and more that takes place on Sunday afternoons around the George-Étienne Cartier Monument in Mount Royal Park" - MTLBlog
Mont-Royal is the best place to get beautiful city vistas. Visit the iconic cross and look out over the Plateau.
Located at the foot of Mount-Royal. This spot is bustling on Sundays during the summer months with weekly tam-tams. There will inevitably be a drumming circle, juggling, slack line, fantasy combat etc.
