The 2019 Quebec Winter Carnival will be held over 11 days rather than the usual 17. The two parades, scheduled for Feb. 9 and 16, will take place in Upper Town only.

At a press conference held at the Musée national des Beaux-Arts du Québec on Nov. 7, Carnival managing director Mélanie Raymond and consultant Daniel Gélinas revealed details of next year’s parade.
