The 65th edition of this quintessential winter event will be pulling out all the stops! The Quebec Winter Carnival in association with Loto-Québec will offer an incomparable experience to the thousands of visitors attending from all over the globe. Follow the mascot, Bonhomme Carnaval, into his universe of snow and ice all around the city of Québec and see this year’s Parade, which will focus on innovation and entertainment. Layer up and dress for the cold weather: it’s happening from February 8 to 17!

Celebrate winter at the Parade

Taking place on February 9 and 16, the Parade will draw its inspiration from a wide variety of art forms, including circus and media arts. Watch Grande Allée Street come alive with spectacular features, such as acrobatic performances, an ice sculpture created live with a chain saw and pyrotechnic demonstrations. Visitors can also expect dancing, music and wonderfully decorated floats at this parade where tradition, modernity, art and technology are intertwined and where the creativity of the artistic community is placed front and center. Carnival-goers will be amazed to see the flow of so many magical scenes!
