THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL IN FEBRUARY

In Canada, February is traditionally a month spent indoors at home (whether you’ve got a hot Valentine or not). But Montreal don’t play like that anymore: winter festival Montréal en Lumière makes the month bright, along with the festivities of Black History Month and an abundance of art shows, dance and theatre performances, winter outdoor activities, and, as ever, music…

BLACK HISTORY MONTH IN MONTREAL

Because this is Montreal, where festivals are so popular that a whole section of downtown is dedicated to them, it may come as no surprise that Montreal’s Black History Month has a festival spirit to it.

Like most professionals, highly skilled and experienced dancers can make their art appear so easy – it’s astounding to see something so beautiful yet so rigorous, and, truth be told, satisfying to see dancers sweat to challenging choreography.

Montreal puts its own in the spotlight this week: musicians, filmmakers, actors, dancers, all kinds of the assorted amazing talent this town seems to inspire on a daily basis.

FREE THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: NOVEMBER

Falling a close second behind February as everyone’s least-favourite month (though Montreal has cleverly thrown a wrench in that logic by holding our Nuit Blanche festivities in February), November might not seem the most fabulous time in this northern town – but one look beyond the superficial and it’s abundantly clear that November is awesome, especially if you’re a fan of free stuff, the arts and leisurely times outside…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: NOVEMBER 4-10

The encroaching winter hasn’t made an impact on the bustle of Montreal’s entertainment and arts scene– no fewer than three film festivals, a city-wide celebration of French music, brand new art that references masterful classics in accessible ways, classical and traditional music of the highest calibre from around the world, sweet nights at the theatre, experiments in dance and electronic arts, and indie-rock and folk to warm the heart…
