Map & Street Closures
Cars are prohibited on de Maisonneuve and Ste. Catherine, from De Bleury to St. Urbain for the duration of the festival. Click here for a map of the Jazz Festival outdoor perimeter and street closures.

Get to the Jazz Fest
Considering how congested it gets around the jazz fest car-free perimeter, save yourself the trouble of finding parking (and reduce carbon emissions) by leaving your cars at home. Take the subway, get off at either Place-des-Arts Metro or St. Laurent Metro and just follow the crowd upon exit.
