What is the Effigy?
Since 1955, the Effigy has been on the Quebec Winter Carnival’s main sources of funding. It is required to access most of our sites and activities. Each year, a new Effigy to the likeness of Bonhomme Carnaval is created to be worn as a pendent on your coat throughout the event.
Visitors 8 years old or older must wear the Effigy to access Carnival sites.
The Effigy is made and packaged in Quebec.
