14 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

The first weekend in October is finally here!
14 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

The cold air has officially overtaken our city and with the thought of impending winter lingering over us all (parts of Quebec are already expecting snow), now is the time to be out and about in Montreal.

October is here and with it comes an entirely new array of activities. Sure, this time of the year bring us pumpkin-spiced everything and adorable layered outfits, but we would be lost without the dozens of fall festivities where we get to show them off.

As per usual, Montreal is host to a variety of cool events this weekend that will motivate you to get up off that couch and join in on the fun. 

Whatever you decide to do this weekend, make sure you don't flake out because winter is coming, and apparently it will be here sooner than we think. 

If I haven’t convinced you just yet, check out what is going on this weekend for yourself! 

If you're looking for an excursion outside of the city, check out these activities:
