Effigy

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.

Where to buy Effigies

The 2018 Effigy is available for exclusive presale in Couche-Tard locations of the Quebec City area. You may also buy it online at The Point of Sale. From January 1 onwards, the Effigy will be available for its regular price ($15). Starting January 9, the Effigy will be available only in participating Couche-Tard locations in the Quebec City area and at the Carnival Shop.
