1. Igloofest, Montreal
Jazz lovers can have July; come January, it’s electronic music that takes over the streets. For four winter weekends and 12 nights total, from 6:30 pm to midnight, head to Montreal’s Old Port to dance the night away with local and international DJs, sip warming drinks at the bar, buy gear at the Igloo village or even get your photo taken to enter the one-piece snowsuit competition.
