Approximately 250,000 Lebanese people are living in Montreal, and they are super active in their communities! They do a great job in preserving the Lebanese culture. The 16th edition of the Lebanese Cultural Festival will take place in Montreal next month! For four straight days, visitors will enjoy Lebanese food including shish taouk sandwiches and saj. Live performances and dabke will rock the event! The festival gathers Lebanese people from Montreal and other cities. In 2009, 4,475 Lebanese-Canadians formed the longest dabke line ever during the event!
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
