Every January and February Montreal Old Port turns into an electro music capital thanks to one beloved winter tradition here in Quebec. Igloofest is a unique open-air festival that includes music, dancing, contests and actual igloos. The celebration lasts for 4-6 weeks and gathers around 10,000 participants every year.

Don't miss the registration for a “One Piece Contest”, where judges will decide whose skiing costume looks more fun. They help to stay warm all night long and bring more colours to the crowd. If not this then take part in other snow competitions, or visit the Nordic village with a temporary interactive dwelling.
