Rue Fermier 2023: garden and community

Agriculture, Events, Volunteering - Personal

Join us on Thursday, July 13 for the 2023 edition of Rue Fermier! Santropol Roulant’s most anticipated event of the year, Rue Fermier is our annual open door celebration of community and agriculture.

To celebrate the first summer season of the permanent installation of the Terrasses Roy, this year’s celebration will be held amidst the gardens in front of the Roulant. You can think of it as the best block party of the season!

  • When: Thursday, July 13, 2023 from 4:00 to 9:00 PM
  • Where: Terrasses Roy, 111 rue Roy Est, Montreal
  • Cost: Free!

Festivities will include live music, dancing, garden tours, face painting, a Santropol Roulant farm stand, and more surprises. In true Roulant style, there will be delicious free food prepared by our staff and volunteers. This event is rain or shine, fully accessible, and engaging for people of all ages.
