- MTL Blog here to provide you with 29 free things to do in Montreal this February, which means something for each day of the month.
- Yes, you read right: all these activities won't cost you a dime!
- Check out the list below!
February is two things: both the month of love and the shortest month of the year. But this one offers up one more day than usual, so why get out (or hell, stay in - we're not judging) and enjoy a few free things to do in Montreal this February? Winters are long and this month does tend to feel longer than most, even with only 29 days in its calendar.
With spring nearly close enough to touch this may be the last month to enjoy all those outdoor winter sports while the snow is still there. February is also the time to kick up a celebration for Valentine's Day with your favourite person, alone, or by ignoring it altogether.
This month's list of free things to do has everything from winter festivals at the Olympic stadium to free workouts that you may have never heard of before, some culture, some food, and even indoor pursuits to while the days away without feeling guilty.
No matter what you choose, it will help make the shortest month fly by even faster.
So, if you're looking for ways to not have to think about opening your wallet, keep reading to find out 29 free activities to do in February in Montreal that may not already be on your radar.
