MONTREAL — Three of Montreal’s largest festivals — and tourist draws — have announced they are cancelling plans for the summer.
Just For Laughs will postpone its festival until the fall, and will run from Sept. 29 to Oct. 11. Zoofest and Off-JFL will also be affected.
The Montreal International Jazz Festival and the FrancoFolies have both also announced they are cancelling for this summer.
Those announcements were all made on Friday. On Thursday, it was announced that Montreal’s Fringe Festival is also cancelled for 2020.
“We continue to follow the evolution of COVID-19 very closely as well as the directives issued by the Government of Quebec and we will adapt as we go along,” read a statement from the Just for Laughs team.
