From January 30 to February 16, 2015, discover a winter paradise at Jacques Cartier Park in Gatineau. The Snowflake Kingdom, as part of the Winterlude event, invites you to come enjoy the biggest winter playground in North America. Families, couples and friends head to Outaouais and Canada’s capital to discover loads of free original activities and magnificent snow and ice sculptures. You’ll also get to meet the Ice Hog family, the friendly event mascots, who are always ready to give out free hugs!

Get Ready for Some Sport!

Coproduced by the City of Gatineau and the Ministry of Canadian Heritage, the Snowflake Kingdom has chosen sports as the general theme and as the focus of the activities. This is your chance to get back into classic winter activities like skiing or ringette, or try out something more unusual like kicksledding or snow soccer.

Something for all Ages

The Snowflake Kingdom is the ideal family destination. Visitors can enter the site free of charge and there are themed zones that appeal to various age groups. The XTREME Zone is sure to be a hit with thrill-seekers thanks to a huge zipline, snow karts and a giant maze. The BLIZZARD evening on Saturday February 7 is a blast for teens ages 12 to 17 – there’ll be a DJ, door prizes and participants get a VIP treatment. Over twenty larger-than-life slides promise lots of laughs for the whole family, while tots will love dancing along to entertaining songs.

Don’t Miss a Second

Check out the Snowflake Kingdom and Winterlude website to plan your visit, find your favourite activities and shows, and most of all, to make sure you don’t miss a thing. A definite must-see: the lighting of the snow sculptures on Friday and Saturday nights!
