PyCon IS in Montréal

About Montreal

If you are searching for a bar or a restaurant, have a look at the list we've compiled here: /pycon/bars-restaurants/


Montréal and its many Pythonistas are looking forward to seeing you up North! You will need to come prepared though: for those of you who are not Canadian, this probably means getting your hands on a pair of snowshoes, a plaid flannel shirt, skis, and a passport.


If you are an American citizen, you can apply directly online: Otherwise, you probably already have your passport since you made it to Santa Clara PyCon 2013: congrats!

Should you have any questions about traveling to Montréal, please visit the Tourism Montréal booth in the PyCon Expo Hall (booth #196), or talk to one of those lumberjacks wearing Montréal-Python shirts. There will also be printed copies of the USA passport application forms at the Tourism Montréal booth.
