On Saturday, August 11, the public is invited to the third edition of the musical event Piknic Electronik@Lachine Canal, a free major family gathering hosted by Parks Canada.

A checkered tablecloth will be rolled out along the shores of the Canal and music will be provided by the Piknic Electronik team.

Whether you bring a picnic or not, there’ll be a spot for you at the table!

As tradition dictates, the now famous 500-metre-long checkered tablecloth will be spread out throughout the site to accommodate everyone wanting a place to eat.

New this year, those who arrive without provisions will be able to treat themselves to fare from the Grumman ’78 and Pas de cochon dans mon salon canteens, and can stop by the Piknic bar to buy summer refreshments.

Musical program

Great guests will be performing at this outdoor event, starting with a pillar of the Montreal scene, and continuing with a Londoner just after teatime! (Click for information, details, and musical excerpts)
