Where to park for Montréal en Lumière

Coming from U.S. for a weekend day of the festival (with young ones), where can we park? Money no concern, just want it to be predictable, no headaches, big vehicle, have been stuck in Montreal trying to find parking before and it practically negates the trip. Have gone through Metro and Terrains de stationnement sites, but cannot learn enough and hear those lots are always full for this.

Thanks in advance.

Indoor either the Place des Arts or the Complexe Desjardins, I don't know their height limitations though.

If not feasible there is an open air parking lot just two blocks away, on the east side of Square Philips.

Thanks for the tip, rickb, wouldn't you assume these lots would be full on the weekend of the festival? We would not get in until noontime. Thanks again.

might be easier to park near a metro and take it. Place des arts metro station is right in the middle of the festival site. You could park around Atwater metro (free parking on the street shouldn't be too hard on a weekend, but do take note of the parking signs so you dont get a ticket) and take it from there. It's only about 10 minutes and would be way easier than trying to park around the festival site.

thats what i would do anyway

Those places are rarely full.

Place des Arts is a large parking lot. There is also a large indoors one at berri UQAM (just a short walk away), Complexe Desjardins, Eaton Center, Complexe les Ailes, Palais des congres...

It's a nice festival but it's not like grand prix. There will be payed parking available.
