Sliding in the spotlight

For the 36th edition of the Fête des Neiges de Montréal

8 days to experience winter at its best

The weekends from January 19th to February 10th, 2019 are unmissable winter days in Montreal with the Fête des Neiges, which offers a mostly free outdoor program at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montréal.

Featured this year: the Descentes givrées

In great novelty, the Descentes givrées offer you an incomparable gliding experience. Comprised of 18 ice corridors, these courses erected at the foot of Mount Boullé will appeal to little ones and the more adventurous alike.

The Descentes givrées is available with the Passport, which provides unlimited access to the activity during the 8 days of the event, as well as several other benefits such as free admission to the Stewart Museum and the Biosphère, a natural environment museum, where it is good to warm up the tips of your fingers and toes!

A flamboyant team of entertainers dressed as 36 different colorful characters accompany the famous mascot, "Boule de neige," and will guide you through the Fête des Neiges. From the majestic ice pirate ship, where Captain Crinière greets you, to putting you to the test in the Ninjas Huskies Course or to a friendly game of giant Baby-foot, everything is in place for you to forget the cold and create magical moments that the whole family will remember for a long time.

A festive atmosphere

To add to the mood, a variety of artists will perform on outdoor stages. Among the artists expected are Atchoum et ses microbes, Cool Kids, Ari Cui Cui, Trad Duo and QW4RTZ. Adults will also feel like children again with a special show celebrating the 50th anniversary of Télé-Québec, where seven characters who have made history on the channel will be on stage.

A signature spectacle of the Fête des Neige for several years now, the ice sculptor Nicolas Godon will dazzle the public every day with his express performances and a demonstration where spectators are invited to interact with him.

The party will continue into the Zone Faim de Loup, where singers use guitars, banjos and vocals for intimate performances. Country, blues, rock and folk will help satiate your wolf hunger while savoring the comforting dishes of one of the many food concessions.

What fun!
