Stade Olympique

Stade Olympique Review

Montrealers finished paying for their Olympic stadium (dubbed the "Big O") in the spring of 2006—30 years after the games for which it was built—but they still call it the "Big Owe," and not very affectionately, either. The architecture is dramatic, squatting like a giant flying saucer in the middle of the east end, but it proved to be unworkable and was abandoned by the sports teams it was supposed to house. Now used mostly for trade shows, it offers a tour but there's little to see for the price. But come in summer, on the first Friday of the month, and join the locals who flock to the park outside the stadium to feast from Montréal's food trucks—all of them congregate here for the event.
