Montreal March 2023 Family Activities
Winter is more than halfway over and spring break is here. Whether you’re planning a staycation or heading to a warmer destination, this month is one of the most entertaining Montreal has seen in quite some time. With tons of live performances and other fun events, Montreal March 2023 family activities have something for everyone!
Disney On Ice – March 2-5
A March break classic in Montreal, Encanto and Frozen hit the ice for Disney’s upcoming show at the Bell Centre. Three English shows are taking place: Thursday at 7pm, Friday at 11am and Sunday at 3pm.
Tickets range from $24-$172
Bread Making Workshop – February 26 – March 5
Another great spring break activity is taking place at Chateau Ramezay in Old Montreal. Families will have the opportunity to churn their own butter and then make bread from scratch. The activity takes place daily from 11:30am to 3:30pm with no reservations required. While at the museum kids can dress up in 18th century costumes and take photos on a New France backdrop.
Family admission $23.91, kids under 4 are free
First Montreal FC Home Game – March 5
Soccer is back and the FC’s first home game of the year is taking place at the Olympic Stadium, against the Philadelphia Union. Grab a kid’s ticket for $20 and if you’ve got some super fans, take a look at the entire schedule for tickets in the Milk2Go Active Zone at the Saputo Stadium for future games.
St Patrick’s Day Parade – March 17
Back after a Covid hiatus, this parade is one of the city’s liveliest and fun for kids. Find your spot along Ste Catherine street, between Fort and Metcalfe. The parade begins at 12pm.
Jurassic Park in Concert – March 18
The famous dinosaur thriller is showing in a different kind of theatre, Salle Wilfred Pelletier! The movie will be shown on the big (HD) screen as a full symphony orchestra performs the musical track alongside it. Note to parents, this film can be scary for the younger set so I recommend this one for kids 10+. The concert start time of 7:30pm also makes ideal for bigger kids.
Tickets range $60-$135
Cabane Panache – March 23-26
The sugar shack comes to the city in this annual event on Wellington Street in Verdun. Closed to traffic, the street transforms into a country oasis complete with lumberjacks, games, and, of course, maple syrup on snow. Local restaurants will be selling their delicacies including Bossa, Archway, Notre Boeuf de Grace and more. The event takes place between 11am and 5pm/6pm daily.
The Outdoor Show – March 25-26
This trade show takes place at Palais des Congrès and focuses on outdoor travel and activities, with a family spin. Upon visiting the show, kids will be given a passport to participate in a scavenger hunt. They then make their way through the show collecting bear print stamps at participating booths. Once they’ve collected them all they’ll get a small prize and be entered to win a larger prize. Other show highlights include a scuba tank and camping setups.
Kids under 11 are free, adults $12, Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 10am-5pm
Aladdin, The Musical – March 28 – April 2
Montreal gets a little bit of Broadway as Aladdin makes its debut at Place des Arts. Matinee shows are available on April 1 and 2 with 8pm shows daily.
Tickets range $100-$182
Harlem Globetrotters – March 31 – April 1
This entertaining basketball show/game is back at both the Bell Centre and Place Bell in Laval. Expect lots of laughs and tricks, and even an opportunity to meet the players, as our city gets a much needed dose of basketball. The Friday show takes place at 8pm and the Saturday show at 2pm.
Tickets range $40-$125
Don’t forget about Montreal en Lumiere too which carries over from last month until March 5!
