Event Description Form

The Event description form allows us to gather important details about your event in order to ensure its success. Please complete and save this form before emailing it back to your event advisor at least 30 days prior to your event. Any delays in sending this form may impact the service quality and even incure the cancellation of the event without reimbursement of the deposit.

Application for alcohol permits

The Montreal Science Centre does not have an alcohol permit. You must therefore obtain a permit from the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux du Québec to consume or sell alcohol at your event. Applications must be submitted to the RACJQ at least two weeks prior to your event.

It is important to make sure that the permit is displayed in full view during your event.
