Quebec City, February 11, 2021 — The 67th Québec Winter Carnival, presented in cooperation with Loto-Québec, has announced that its ice and snow sculptures and monuments will remain in place until February 21, extending this part of the program. Located throughout the city’s shopping and dining districts, the hundred or so sculptures (Scotiabank Ice and Snow Route) and magnificent 20-foot-high ice towers (Loto-Québec Ice Towers) symbolizing Bonhomme’s palace will continue to captivate winter walkers. 

“The people we spoke to during the first few days of the Carnival were so happy to see the city looking so lively and cheerful that we decided to extend our monuments and sculptures for another week,” said Québec Winter Carnival CEO Mélanie Raymond. “People are also welcome to view the content still available on our YouTube channel.” The Carnival’s Virtual St-Hubert Snow Bath Challenge, Scotiabank Snow Route Contest, and Place Jean-Béliveau features and activities will end on February 14 as planned.  

 Carnival-goers can view the Loto-Québec Ice Towers at the following locations: 

  • Place Limouloise 

  • Église Saint-Roch 

  • Église Saint-Angèle-de-Saint-Malo 

  • Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste  

  • Place D’Youville 

The snow and ice sculptures can be admired on Avenue Maguire (Sillery), Grande Allée, Avenue Cartier (Montcalm), and 3e Avenue (Limoilou), in the Petit Champlain district, and around City Hall (Old Quebec).
