14 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend
  • From the new Imagine Van Gogh exhibition to Christmas markets and fireworks, the options of things to do in Montreal this weekend are unlimited!
  • Don't let the cold keep you inside during your days off...
  • Read below to find out what's up in our city this weekend!

December is here, which means the holidays are pretty much the only thing on everyone's mind at the moment, both in Montreal and around the world. The cold air, jam-packed shopping malls and sweet sounds of Christmas music have taken over our city but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a ton of cool things to do in Montreal this weekend. 

As 2019 starts to come to an end, we locals must make the best of each remaining day. And, this weekend is a great way to knock some things off your list before 2020 arrives. 

This weekend has some pretty cool events happening around the city. From luxury sales and vegan markets to free movies and free outdoor shows, this upcoming weekend has quite a bit to take advantage of.

Believe me, I'm aware of how cold it is outside, but we're from Montreal - we drink iced coffee in the cold and we're not going to let the temperature dictate our weekend plans. And, before the holidays take over our lives completely as we bounce around from party to party, take some time for yourself and do something fun for yourself!
