- Below are listed 14 things to do in Montreal this weekend, the first full weekend in September.
- From the final editions of summertime pop-ups to food festivals, these are the things to check out!
The first full weekend of September has finally arrived!
The air is getting cooler, dresses are turning into pants and everyone throughout Montreal is looking for ways to enjoy the fall. I am sure I am not the only one feeling pressure to get out of my house as much as possible before that first snow fall hits.
This weekend, as per usual, there is a lot going on in Montreal. With so much to do and see, there is no reason to stay home this weekend — that is what winters are for.
Food festivals are still going on, cool bars and drinks need to be tried and there is a fried chicken spot that will most likely blow your mind.
These are just a few of the cool and incredible things going on in and around our city over the weekend.
We are truly lucky to live in a city that is constantly filled with life, activities and so many unique treats to sink our teeth into. Do not waste your days in front of a TV, go out and enjoy the beauty that is Montreal in the late summer!
