Celebrate Spring: Ultimate Guide to March Events and Festivals

Spring is almost near, which means warmer weather and even more events to look forward to happening in and around the Montreal area! Here are just a few unique events and festivals taking part in the city.


Blue Jays Spring Training

March 25th-26th, 2019

The Toronto Blue Jays are back at the Olympic stadium to play the Milwaukee Brewers in their sixth annual pre-season game in Montreal. This will be the 50th anniversary of the defunct yet beloved Expos. “Montreal is a city with great baseball history and tradition,” said Blue Jays president Mark Shapiro. “We are excited to join in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Montreal Expos and to continue creating memories for Blue Jays fans across Canada.”

Tickets start at 19.25$ and go up to 86.75$. If you don’t live close, like those living in the TAK condos in Rosemont, we suggest you take public transportation, as thousands flood the area to watch the game.


Expo Manger Santé

March 15th-17th, 2019

In its 22nd year, The Expo Manger Santé et Vivre Vert is bigger and better than ever with 350 vegetarian/organic/green living vendors on site at the Palais des Congrès de Montreal. This event is open to anyone and everyone who is eager to learn about a healthier greener lifestyle, and purchase eco-friendly items, unique vegetarian and vegan delicacies and more. There is also a multitude of demonstrations and workshops that take place throughout the weekend too!  “We are thrilled to see the current fervour and propensity toward healthy eating, a trend now reflected in Canada’s latest Food Guide,” says Renée Frappier, Founder of Expo Manger Santé et Vivre Vert.”What a pleasure to see such major changes occurring in our everyday eating habits. At the Expo, our aisles are filled with green products and we are proud to help bring these eco-solutions to a more receptive audience than ever before!”


Maple Season

The end of February marks the beginning of ‘cabanes à sucres’ season! There are a ton of events happening inside the city celebrating all things maple syrup. If you didn’t already know, Quebec is home to hundreds of the best sugar shacks and produces approximately 80% of the worlds maple syrup. If you aren’t interested in leaving the city to visit one of the nearby cabanes, be sure to attend at least one of the events in the city to mark the occasion. From March 21st to the 24th, La Cabane Panache et Bois Rond is back in Verdun for the 9th year, it’s free to attend for all. Upscale sugar shack foods are being served in the Old Port at the 8th edition of “Chef à l’érable” by Hakim Chajar. Maple taffy stands start appearing in town around early March outside select metro stations, Parc Jean-Drapeau and Jean-Talon Market too!
