FALLA SAINT-MICHEL

PRESENTED BY VAN HOUTTE IN COLLABORATION WITH FONDS DE SOLIDARITÉ FTQ

A fiery 15th anniversary !

August 9 to 11, TOHU will host the 15th edition of the FALLA of Saint-Michel, a festival that comes ablaze with colour and fire! Presented by Van Houtte in collaboration with Fonds de solidarité FTQ, this new edition features family-oriented activities and musical performances that will have the crowd dancing... all for free! The FALLA of Saint-Michel will set a structure more than 9 meters tall ablaze - a landmark moment of the festival, complete with a spectacular frenzy of pyrotechnics.

Random Recipe, Queen Ka and guests, Jérôme 50, David Goudreault, Mehdi Cayenne and Noubi Trio will take turns filling TOHU's outdoor stage starting at 6 pm, August 9 and 10. New for this year, TOHU invites families to a Sunday gathering chock-full of activities for young and old alike, August 11, from 11 am to 4 pm, to mark the 15th anniversary of TOHU and the FALLA of Saint-Michel.

LIGHTING OF THE GIANT WORK

On the evening of Saturday, August 10, the giant collective work will be set ablaze - a structure built by a band of young falleros supported by a team of professionals, dedicated volunteers and hundreds of devoted citizens from the Saint-Michel borough. For this 15th edition, the gigantic structure will be inspired by "games and toys" - a theme that brings people together in a festive atmosphere. Expect to see 3D Lego figurines, a giant model of Tintin's rocket, oversized Rubik's cubes and dice, a wooden shack, and images evoking traditional games. Get ready for a dose of nostalgia!

Every year since its creation in 2004, TOHU is happy and proud to host the falleros - young Montrealers undergoing socioprofessional integration, supported by the Programme d'information sur le travail et la recherche d'emploi de Montréal (PITREM). Aged 16-23 years, they will spend 10 weeks erecting the colossal 9-meter-high and 10-meter-wide structure.
