You loved them so much last year, the Picnics at the Circus are back! 

Plus this year, we took advantage of spring to get a makeover and completely renovate Le Jardin du Monastère! Come and (re)discover the only green space downtown and its new layout.

The formula does not change:

For a 5@7 with your colleagues, in solo, in family or between friends, come to celebrate the beautiful days in a convivial and unusual atmosphere.

You just have to bring your dinner and your good mood, and we will take care of the rest by offering you 3 new circus acts each week by the best Montreal artists!


AUGUST 4-5-6 & 11-12-13 2022

To celebrate our diversity together, Le Monastère is partnering this year again with Montreal Pride to present a Circus Cabaret event that is timeless and genre defying that will mesmerize you! 

The sharp bodies of our performers, their all encompassing smiles and sensuality will be yours to appreciate next August 4-5-6 and 11-12-13 in Le Jardin du Monastere at the foot ot the St. Jax Church bell tower.

A festive open sky presentation that will celebrate the beauty and power of our Montréal and Québec 2SLGBTQ+ diversity. A show that guarantees something for everyone’s taste including trash, poetic, impressive, cute, impertinent and daring too, but always good.

Enjoy the summer weather while drinking at the bar and why not stay on to dance to the beats of our DJ! The Pride Circus Cabaret, an enchanting show, subversive and dazzling, that you will definitely not want to miss!


SEPTEMBER 1-2-3 & 8-9-10 2022

To enjoy the last beautiful temperatures and celebrate our common passion for the circus, Le Monastère invites you to attend the last outdoor cabaret of the year!

It will take place in September 1-2-3 and 8-9-10 in Le Jardin, at the foot of the church steeple at the St Jax Center. Come discover a whole new selection of artists in this festive open-air show.

Sometimes poetic, sometimes comic, you will have something for all tastes, as always. A unique experience that allows you to experience Montreal’s artistic culture up close.

A little thirsty? Our bar service will be there to offer you a selection of Quebec wines, beers and spirits, to sip to the sound of the DJ set!


Le Monastère thanks the Conseil des arts de Montréal for its fiscal sponsorship which allows it to carry out its artistic activities.
