Montreal Family Activities April 2023
As weekends of skiing and hockey come to an end, we welcome spring and that weight-shedding act of trading winter boots for rain boots and parkas for pea coats. With Easter and Passover activities aplenty, and sugaring off season in full swing, here are a few of my top choices for Montreal family activities April 2023 has to offer.
Super Mario Movie – Opens April 5
We’ve been counting down to the opening of this movie in my house for a few months now. The famous video game comes to life featuring voices like Chris Pratt, Seth Rogan and Jack Black. Enjoy the show!
Easter Egg Hunt at Quinn Farm – April 7-10
Over the long weekend, this Île Perrot farm will be welcoming guests of all ages to participate in a Covid-style Easter egg hunt. With 10 stations around the farm, kids can place their baskets underneath the chutes and wait for plastic easter eggs to roll down. Each child will receive a handmade chocolate lollipop from the Easter Bunny. The play area and farm animals will be a highlight too, as well as maple taffy on snow.
$5/entry, $5/hunter 2+, Reservations required
Easter Egg Hunt at Cidrerie Lacroix – April 8-9
Never thought about visiting an apple orchard in the spring? Well, this Easter weekend kids can enjoy an easter egg hunt, featuring challenges to make it all the way to the Easter bunny. With the $15 fee, participants will also receive a surprise bag. While you’re there, you can also reserve to enjoy a maple-style Easter brunch.
Easter at the Ecomuseum Zoo – April 8-9
The last Easter adventure on my list leads you to the zoo! This is an egg challenge like no other that has guests identifying different types of animal eggs on a special passport. Kids will make their way through the zoo looking for clues until they find them all.
$23.50/adults, $14/kids, Reservations required
Hockey Faster Than Ever – April 7 – September 10
The Montreal Science Centre kicks off a new exhibit that is all things hockey. Over 30 interactive stations will include activities like a tunnel walk, slapshot skills, sitting in a penalty box, seeing a virtual Stanley Cup and playing arcade games. The exhibit also features a wealth of information about the history of hockey.
$79.50/family with access to the rest of the museum
Toycon – April 15-16
All things toys are making their way to Montreal during this two-day, free trade show. Exhibitors will be on-site with their favourite collectibles like Funkopops, trading cards, action figures and more. The show is on daily from 10am-4pm.
Courtyard Marriott Airport
Les Lumières de St Michel – April 16-30
For two weeks in April, kids 7+ and their families can make lanterns at the St. Michel arena. There are 3 design options to choose from including an insect, a flower and a stencil. These lanterns will be used in June for the St. Michel parade, in partnership with Tohu. They will be illuminated for this very special big citizen parade.
SOS Labyrinth Reopening – April 29
The Old Montreal indoor maze will be reopening for the season. With 2km to explore, this is a super fun family activity for all ages. Check out our adventure there last year on Tik Tok. If you love it you may want to consider getting a family pass for the summer. It’s $131 for a family of 4, versus $76 for a one-time entry.
