Montréal's festivals and events in winter

Winter in Montréal defies all cold weather expectations as the city celebrates wintertime with an abundance of outdoor parties, high-tech light shows, Christmas markets and creative gourmet food. Warm up at Montréal's best restaurants, dance and play at jubilant winter festivals, sip a signature cocktail by the glow of a fireplace, stroll through fascinating art galleries and museums, shop for one-of-a-kind gifts at professional craft fairs, zip on a snowsuit and sled down the mountain with locals, go ice skating in Parc La Fontaine or next to the St. Lawrence River, or simply get cozy in hotels all decked out for the season.
