Come experience one of the world's largest winter carnivals in beautiful Québec City. Every year, thousands of visitors flock to the Québec Winter Carnival to enjoy a host of activities for all ages, including snow bath, ice canoe race, night parades, snow slides, giant foosball, snow sculptures, shows, sleigh rides, and skating.

In addition, 11 commercial streets and arteries of Québec City will present various Carnival activities from January 30th to February 15th, 2015. The merchants on participating streets will be dressed to the nines and will extend Bonhomme’s Winterland way beyond the Plains of Abraham.

An impressive iron throne honouring HBO’s Game of Thrones will be on display during the Carnaval. The sculpture has been erected near Bonhomme’s Palace, in the Loto-Québec Zone, and will remain there throughout the 17 days of the Carnival.
