So many options, so little time!
  • Below are listed 15 activities and events to explore this weekend in Montreal.
  • Be sure especially to check out Montreal Pride, which reaches its peak this weekend.
  • We only have a few more weekends of summer so be sure to enjoy them!

As the summer sadly comes to an end, Montrealers are taking advantage of the fleeting warm and sunny days while they're still here.

As months of clothes layering and isolation in our homes loom ahead of us, I know I am not the only person in the city that is feeling pressure to get out and enjoy these last few weeks of summer.

There is always so much to do in Montreal and this weekend is no exception. From food festivals, to the peak of Montreal pride to even playing real-life Mario Kart, this weekend has the potential to be one to remember.
