The Montréal Snow Festival or Fête des Neiges is a fabulous winter celebration where families play outdoors and enjoy plenty of activities like ice-sculpting contests, dogsled races, snow games and performances by costumed characters such as the mascot polar bear, Boule de Neige. Montréal’s Snow Festival is held over four weekends from mid-January to mid-February in the magical setting of Parc Jean-Drapeau, which is spread over two islands. This is a great place for sledging, ice-skating, ziplining, curling, and skiing, making it a real winter wonderland for all ages.
