MomentumFest MTL is a community-focused festival celebrating fusion bellydance in all its formats and flavours. Every year in mid-July, we offer a full weekend of workshops with some of the most inspiring artists in this corner of the world and elsewhere, as well as three nights of shows featuring an array of international artists, all in the vibrant heart of Montreal. We also organize other events throughout the year to keep the momentum going. Our aim is to bring dancers together to exchange ideas, forge strong bonds, and celebrate this living dance. So, let's get together and create some momentum!
Announcement Regarding MomentumFest MTL 2020
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of this year's edition of MomentumFest MTL, scheduled for July 10th through 12th, 2020.
The Quebec government has asked that all festivals, sporting events, and cultural gatherings be cancelled until August 31st, 2020, and we must comply.
We had been holding out hope that things would be looking more promising for July, but we acknowledge and respect the measures currently in place to help slow the spread of COVID-19. As much as we wanted to see you all this summer, the health and safety of all of our communities is the most important thing.
Since it's impossible to know how long social distancing measures and travel restrictions will be kept in place, we have decided to cancel the 2020 edition rather than postpone until later in the year. We'll be back (and better than ever!) in July of 2021.
We will be issuing refunds to all those who purchased workshops and passes, you will receive an email from us with more information in the coming days. We thank you for supporting the festival and we appreciate your patience while we process all the refunds.
We miss you, friends, and we're disappointed we won't see you this summer, but we know that we'll come out of this stronger and more united than before.
Until then, be well, be kind, and believe we'll get together soon.
