15 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

The last weekend before fall!
  • Below are listed 15 things to do in Montreal this weekend, the last weekend of summer.
  • From a chance at free poutine on Friday, to a lantern festival on Saturday, to a vegan festival on Sunday, these are the activities and events to check out!

The weekend is near and in a city as awesome as Montreal, I know I am not the only local looking forward to spending a few days for myself. 

The summer came and went and now that we are in full out fall mode. And as fall officially arrives (the Equinox is on Monday), there are a number of new activities taking place in our city. 

With all-night ragers, an icon concert and of course lots of food, this weekend will get fall started right.

Below are activities and events taking place in Montreal this weekend. I for one want to spend as much time in the sun as possible before the city turns into a single sheet of ice, so many of these events take place outside!

But if you're looking to get out of Montreal this weekend, here are some road trip ideas:
