CEO Mélanie Raymond, Bonhomme Carnaval (wearing his custom-made face mask) and programming director Alexis Ferland announced details of the upcoming 67th Winter Carnival. The 2021 event will take place from Feb. 5 to 14, with free access to all sites, and $100 worth of coupons with the purchase of the emblematic Bonhomme effigy.

Snow, ice, cold weather…. There’s magic in the air of Quebec City. A giant snowman wearing a red toque, a ceinture fléchée (arrow sash) and a face mask was recently spotted in Lower Town.
