Montreal Fall 2017: The Ultimate Guide

Montreal in the fall may seem like a lot of hustle and bustle with locals returning to their daily grind post Labor day. And you'd be forgiven for assuming festival season winds down in turn. After all, it seems like every other city in North America tempers its summer parties to make way for, I dunno, business conferences?

There's just one thing, folks. This is Montreal, the city of festivals, the city with a joie de vivre that just won't quit, in spite of it also being the poorest city on the continent with an infrastructure so mangled, you'd also be forgiven for thinking some streets are a page out of a third world picture book.

Bienvenue à Montréal!
