- Below are listed 16 things to do in Montreal this weekend, the first weekend of fall!
- From food festivals, to the climate strike, to even a boozy Céline Dion-themed brunch, these are the events to check out!
Fall has officially graced our city and with the weekend quickly approaching, I know I am not the only one who is looking forward to all the things to do in Montreal. Before we know it, Montreal is going to become an arctic-like zone and no one is going to want to leave the comfort of their warm home or step away from Netflix long enough to do anything.
Warm temperatures are lingering for a little longer, so now is the time to get outside.
As per usual, Montreal has some pretty amazing things going on in and around the city that are sure to have you getting out of the house.
From cultural experiences to amazing food and an unusual combination of axe-throwing and alcohol, this weekend is bound to be one that we are going to remember all through the dreaded winter.
So put on a cute outfit, grab your friends or family and dive into one of these amazing activities going on this weekend.
Trust me, you will be missing out if you decide to stay in this weekend!
