Mont-Royal Park, Montreal, Quebec , Canada

Les Tam Tams is a free music festival held on rainless Sundays from May through September; it attracts drummers, dancers, vendors, and curious visitors. The drumming begins at noon and continues until sunset under the angel-toped monument dedicated to Sir George-Etienne Cartier in Mont-Royal Park. The tradition started in the late 1970’s as an African-drumming workshop and now attracts crowds into the thousands. Although it’s best to bring a drum—or tam tam in French—spectators are welcome to join in by dancing or borrowing a djembe, an African drum.
