Scenes from the 2019
Victoria Village Street Festival
Photographer James St Laurent explores this popular and colourful annual event
This year the weather was warm and sunny for the 39th annual Victoria Village Street Festival which took place from Thursday, June 6 to Saturday, June 8. This spring event helped get Westmount residents and their Montreal neighbours out of their long hibernation to rediscover the Victoria Village neighbourhood and participate in an exceptional outdoor fair that offers multiple attractions – sidewalk and in-store sales, activities for children, musical entertainment, street food, artisans and more!
Families congregated at Prince Albert Square to enjoy ice cream and cotton candy while listening to lively musical entertainment.
There were countless items on offer, ranging from craft to kitsch to chic as well as artisan and hands-on demonstrations. Makeup artists transformed young children into clowns, cats or fairies, and a magician strolled the streets with a bag full of tricks. Families congregated at Prince Albert Square to enjoy ice cream and cotton candy while listening to live musical entertainment.
All in all another successful event – to which we say “See you next year!”

James St Laurent communicates through images that convey an emotive context and sometimes engage the viewer by presenting a visual paradox. Different types of subjects and genres require different types of approaches, but the end result is still a compelling image that captures your attention. There are photographs everywhere. The obvious is everywhere, the unique takes a little more time. jamesstlaurent.com
