The Latin Quarter keeps the festivals coming into the fall with OUMF. Like a small sampler of all the summer festivals to help survive the warm, muggy days before the onslaught, comedy, music, and performing arts take over the happening little hood. Terraces will be bumping as the streets fill with crowds to take in the full spectacle.

Music is a daily happening, of course. The DJ booth will be spinning daily from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on St. Denis. Arts plays a large role in this festival with many events happening daily. You can paint St. Denis in goache, watch unicyclists with monotreal, or even catch a break dance battle with Break Dance H.O.R.U. (18-21 p.m.). Also keep an eye out for Le Patin Libre, street performers who take synchronized roller blading to new levels, circus clown performers Tandem Olympique, and acrobats Throw2Catch. Also, try your hand at seriography (screen printing) with Pica magazine who offers an atelier to produce your own poster for just $10.

However, the special nightly music programming is where some hot performers will be taking the stage.
