Québec Winter Carnival

Québec Winter Carnival is starting again at frigid revelers delight! So escape NYC and join the largest winter carnival in the world! Québec Winter Carnival is third on the List of Top Carnivals after the famous carnivals in Rio de Janeiro and New Orleans. So what expect for 2011? Expect to PLAY at "The Real Winter Game!" Concerts, outdoor dance parties, parades, Bonhomme's Ball, International snow sculptures, sleigh rides, snow slides, Winter BBQ and the Caribou. A feisty alcoholic beverage containing brandy, vodka, sherry and port... Wow! The Winter Carnival takes over Québec January 28th to February 13th with full day and night activities for everyone! So don't worry if you didn't keep up with your French lessons; just pack your bags, get to Québec and you may get there in time to skate with Bonhomme... Yippee!

Québec Winter Carnival and Hôtel de Glace (Ice Hotel) is literally the "coolest" place we've ever been! Check out our adventure last year, but before clicking this site please put on a sweater because it's about to get cold!
