We are indeed pleased to confirm that an event featuring the world's greatest aerospace innovation of this century will take place in Montreal. For the first time, a solar plane will fly to Canada, and Montreal will be the first city to host SolarStratos in its attempt to conquer space. In June of 2017, eco-adventurer and pilot Raphael Domjan of Mission Solar Stratos will attempt to leave the Earth's atmosphere and approach the stratosphere above the province of Quebec with his solar-powered aircraft, a world first in the history of aeronautics and space exploration. Rendez-vous in the Old Port of Montreal where Raphael Domjan's solar aircraft, SolarStratos, will be displayed for the general public.
It it's about the sun, you'll find it at this great festival: dance, songs, building, history, techno products, lectures, films, sculptures, literature, etc. People of all ages and all walks of life are warmly invited to visit and discover activities, and participate in various fascinating workshops in the Old Port of Montreal. The Northern Solar Festival also include an innovation & solar energy competition open to young people, "My Solar Project for Quebec".
This festival is directly associated with the celebration of the 375th anniversary of Montreal, the Metropolis World Congress, and the general assembly of the Association internationale des maires francophones. The event will be a paramount showcase for Québec and will bring Montréal at the forefront of international aeronautics, sustainable development and solar energy technology.
