Buy your pass today and plan for a fun-filled day just outside the Montreal city limits.

Visit the market

Market season is still up and running over Labour Day weekend. If you’ve been looking for time to visit one of Montreal’s famous markets before summer produce season ends, the extra day off might be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. Plan a day trip with friends or family to one of the five major markets in the city, such as the Jean-Talon Market (7070 Avenue Henri Julien) or Atwater Market (138 Avenue Atwater).

Go to a nearby festival

Celebrate Labour Day at the 28th Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival. TC Montreal LabourDayThe festival runs from September 3rd through 7th. This spectacular event features hot air balloons of every shape, size and colour.

The event also includes entertainment and activities for festivalgoers of all ages, including over 300 shows and an amusement park. Order your tickets today.

Spend a day at the park

Before cooler autumn weather arrives, savour summer at a local park. Parc Jean-Drapeau has enough to do to easily spend multiple days at this city island.
