The Quartier des Spectacle’s beautiful winter garden returns to Montreal from November 20 to January 2.

Along with its festive atmosphere and giant Christmas tree, the Jardins d’Hiver will be selling local products from maple syrup to toys, decor, clothes, sweets, food, trees, and drinks (great for gifts).

Miracle Montreal will be returning to the city this year, bringing the holiday spirit to a local bar for the third consecutive year (safe for last year).

The month-long pop-up bar kicks off on November 16 and ho-ho-hos until December 26, christening a local spot with ugly Christmas sweaters, gorgeous decorations, quirky parties, and, of course, seasonal cocktails and grub.

This year, Miracle Montreal will take overĀ ParliamentĀ in the Old Port, bringing a sleigh-full of festive feels to the stone-walled pub.

Christmas-themed cocktails include the Christmapolitan, Christmas Carol Barrel, Snowball Old-Fashioned, Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r!, Jingle Balls Nog, Nice Shot, and Naughty Shot.

Maison Pepin will channel its inner Harry Potter by turning its charming alleyway into a breathtaking rustic Christmas market.

The market itself will feature a variety of locally made products for sale and DIY workshops from gift packaging to wreath making.

Without taking away from the local artisans, the alleyway is one of the most picturesque Christmas-themed spots in the city. The narrow walls, dim lighting, light snow, and wreaths are begging to be shared all over Instagram.

The shop, located at 378 Rue St-Paul Ouest, is open every day from 10 am to 6 pm and the gorgeous Christmas alleyway will be set up at the end of November.

MarchƩ de Noƫl de Jean-Talon

Breads, jams, candy, meat, cheese, wine, and everything in between. The Jean-Talon Market might be THE place to grab all of your holiday needs this year.

The daily festivities kick off from November 27 to December 23 this time around.

Considering Christmas is usually associated with snow and ice, it might be time for a little element change.

A giant Christmas fountain, known as ā€œFontaine borĆ©ale,ā€ is returning to the complexe Desjardins for the holiday season and it splashes off on December 4.

The immersive and multi-sensory experience features the Complexe Desjardinā€™s Grande-Place water fountain, completely decked out in the Christmas spirit.
