The Quebec Winter Carnival re-imagined

From February 5th to February 14th will be held the emblematic celebration of winter: the Quebec Winter Carnival ! This celebration for the young and old alike is a must-see event of winter in Quebec City. This 67th edition will certainly be different, but just as festive and fun! The complete program is entirely free of charge so that everyone can participate. Discover what awaits you this year at the Quebec Winter Carnival:


In order to comply with the government’s instructions regarding red zones, the Carnival will exhibit, only outdoors, elements of scenery and monuments of ice and snow. Therefore, it is by strolling through the commercial avenues of Quebec City that you will be able to observe more than a hundred sculptures as well as magnificent giant ice towers.

Cell phone game
To enjoy the experience to the fullest, a game will be available on your cell phone and will allow you to win prizes with the points you earn. The more sculptures you discover, the lower the mercury will be and therefore the more points you will accumulate! This is all to reward those who are, like Bonhomme, ” plus forts que le frette “!
