Next Monday is Patriots' Day in Quebec (known as Victoria Day in the rest of Canada). The holiday commemorates the struggle of the patriots of 1837–1838, who were fighting for democratic rights. To commemorate, we get the day off!

Thanks to this, we get an extra-long, extra activity-packed weekend! To help you look forward to your break, we've compiled a list of some of the best things to do in Montreal this weekend.

From concerts to markets to exercise classes, this list definitely has something for everyone.
