Parcours épicuriens arrive in Montreal! After 3 years of existence in Quebec City, CELEB’Events is proud to launch 4 epicurean routes in different Montreal neighborhoods: Hochelaga, Wellington, Mile-Ex / Little Italy and St-Henri.
Montreal is definitely a city with a food love affair. We have more restaurants per capita than any other city in North America, we have several festivals dedicated to food, food tours, and even special restaurant annual events. Food tours are fun when you are traveling to a city or if you are enjoying a staycation. But they can be expensive. Well, Parcours épicuriens just launched 4 French tours in Montreal at a very affordable price, close to half what you would normally expect to pay. And you can explore less touristy neighborhoods to boot.
“After 3 years of success in Quebec City, we are confident that Montrealers and tourists will also be excited about the concept. In fact, it’s beyond the scope of a city, it’s a matter of passion and curiosity. Montreal is full of neighborhoods full of life and little jewels to discover, we are very excited to set foot there! “, Said Éric Lavoie, co-founder of CELEB’Events and Epicurean routes.

For us, the term “epicurean” means pleasures in the broad sense. That’s why our routes are not only about the pleasures of alcohol and food; they also offer visits to art galleries, karaoke, junk shops and other surprising stops.
