The 67th Quebec Winter Carnival will certainly be different, but no less fun! The complete program has been adapted to the alert level issued by the Quebec government at this time. Presently in a red zone, the 2021 Carnival will deploy outside only scenic elements and contemplative monuments of ice and snow. Disseminated through the commercial arteries of the city, about a hundred sculptures (Scotiabank Ice and Snow Route) and magnificent 20-foot-high towers (Loto-Québec Ice Towers), which will represent Bonhomme’s Palace, will rock Quebecers walks. No event sites will be installed. The virtual program will be added to the Carnival YouTube Channel. The entire Carnival 2021 program is offered free of charge.
Ice and Snow Route Scotiabank
Thanks to our new partnership with Scotiabank, this exceptional exposition during the 2021 Carnival offers about 100 sculptures that will connect Limoilou, Saint-Roch, Saint-Sauveur and Saint-Jean-Baptiste's districts, as well as including special well known picturesque areas of Québec City, such as Place D'Youville, Place Jean-Béliveau, Cartier Avenue, Maguire Avenue, Grande Allée, Québec Old City and Petit Champlain.
To add to the fun, a game accessible with a mobile phone is also available from February 5th for the courageous few. The more sculptures the participants see, and be careful, the lower the temperature, the more points they will earn. Those of you who are like Bonhomme, ‘stronger than the cold’, will be rewarded ! More than 300 prizes offered by Scotiabank, as a grand prize of $2,000 in cash!
Loto-Québec Ice Towers
This year, Bonhomme’s Palace is divided into 6 large ice towers. Inside you will find 6 colourful and surprising worlds inspired by each of the neighbourhoods where they take place. With an original way of discovering them, the Loto- Québec Ice Towers highlight what makes the various neighbourhoods of Quebec City unique.
