- Here are 30 free things to do in Montreal this September, 2019.
- Make the most of the end of summer and celebrate the beginning of fall with these activities and events!
Summer may not officially end until September 23, but with the end of August only days away, it feels like it's just around the corner. Where did the last few months go? It seems like just yesterday we were complaining about the extreme heat.
But Septemeber is still one of the perfect Montreal weather months when the heat has finally abated enough to enjoy walking the city without dripping with sweat, yet cool enough to make an excuse to drink a pumpkin spice latte. I mean, if you're into that kind of thing.
But even though the summer is winding down, and most of the shows and events are starting to pack up until next year, there are still some amazing free festivals and experiences left for September that you should try.
For those who are going back to school, sadly it's time to start watching your budget, so finding cheap and free things to do will save you money that you can spend on things like food and beer.
Whether you are heading back to school, looking for a way to relax or want to check out some cultural events, this list of 30 free things to do in Montreal for September has got you covered.
