Your favourite winter festival is back.

Parc Jean Drapeau’s annual Fete des Neiges returns for three spectacular weeks this winter.

Taking place between January 14th and February 5th, the park will host a myriad of snow-themed events and activities.

On this year’s schedule? Everything from evening dance parties to dog sledding.

Thanks to Montreal’s 375th anniversary, our friends at Parc Jean Drapeau and Tim Horton’s (who sponsors the event), are making this the biggest and best event yet.

Outdoor activities include snow tubing, cross country skiing, dog sledding, snow archery, an icy pirate ship, a special simulator at the Biosphere, ice skating, ice sculptures, ziplining, a ferris wheel, a Village of Penguins, a Polar Circus, snow scooters, an inflatable bouncy castle, and a mini igloo play area.

Each activity is priced individually, however groups or families can purchase an Accro Passe which gets you into all the main attractions. This costs $16 for 2 people or $50 for the entire whole family, and also includes access to the Biosphere and the Stewart Museum.

In addition to the festival’s events, there will be a warming area, baby station, and plenty of food options including Das Truck, Beaver Tails, Subway, Tim Horton’s, Soups and Grills, and Choco-Churros.

Remember to bring your tuque, gloves, and feet warmers, and get ready for the most exciting winter event of the year!
