15 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

A coffee festival, a pop-up market, a job fair, and more!
15 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend: October 18–20, 2019

After the long weekend last week, I know many Montrealers are a bit disjointed. As we start to feel that cold air, it reminds us that winter is right around the corner. But despite the weather, there are plenty of things to do in Montreal this weekend to keep you active!

Autumn isn't solely about foliage and Halloween festivals, it's also about hot beverages, shopping deals, and getting in shape!

This weekend you have the chance to score some good deals on clothes or attend a coffee festival. And, if you're feeling adventurous, you can take a road trip outside the city to view the fall foliage at its peak.

Take this weekend as an opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and experience activities that you may not have participated in before. 

Whatever it is that you decide to do, just make sure you avoid staying home and watching TV — that's what the winter months are for. Since the warm weather is slowly fading, there may only be a few weeks left to go outside without freezing, so now's the time to enjoy the outdoors.

Enjoy your weekend, Montrealers!
