Deux-Montagnes en fête is back for a 6th time this summer, after two years of cancellation due to the pandemic. The organisers are inviting the population to take part in the festivities on August 20th, between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Just like the previous versions, the event will be held on chemin d’Oka, between 12th and 16th Avenue.
According to the city, Deux-Montagnes en fête is the perfect opportunity to discover more about the City through local organizations and merchants who will be presenting their products at their stands and to learn more about the various services offered, while having fun! To entertain children and adults alike, several on-street activities are planned: inflatable games, kids makeup, smoothie bike, electric car test drives, giant games and more!

It is also an opportunity to board a fire truck, a police vehicle and a city truck, which the organisers vow to be greatly appreciated by the whole family!
“We are happy to be able to welcome back the population to this festive event, which allows all to find out more about our services and those offered by our partner organizations who make up our beautiful community”, said Denis Martin, mayor of Deux-Montagnes.
While Oka Street will be holding the festivities, at the same time it will be getting some much-needed renos. The City of Deux-Montagnes announced the reconstruction of the chemin d’Oka, between 20th Avenue and the limit of Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac, as well as the reconstruction of 26th Avenue, between chemin d’Oka and the shore of Lac des Deux Montagnes. Work begun on Monday, August 8, and will run approximately until mid-November.
Work on chemin d’Oka will consist of replacing valve chambers on the aqueduct main, repairing sidewalks and rebuilding the roadway. Repaving work will also be carried out on a portion of 26th Avenue, south of Chemin d’Oka.
Detour routes and local traffic
• Local traffic will be allowed and detour signs will be installed.
• The boat ramp at the end of 26th Avenue will remain accessible, except for certain periods when the Avenue needs to be closed for a short time. Citizens are invited to regularly consult the Public Works Info section of the website.
• Armitage Park will be accessible to pedestrians and cyclists. Citizens who are used to getting there by car will have to park in the surrounding streets. However, the City strongly encourages Armitage Park users to get there by foot or by bike during the work. Flaggers will ensure traffic at the intersection.
Also, considering the heavy machinery that will be circulating all around Armitage Park, parents are called upon to be extra vigilant towards the little ones who run and play in the park.
