More outdoor fun during the winter in Montreal and Fête de Neiges brings it for four weekends in January and February. This year is the 35th edition of Fête de Neiges and thousands of people attend each year. Geared towards families, Fête de Neiges features a whole bunch of activities of the paid or free variety.
While some activities will run throughout there are some special events that will only happen at specific times. Each weekend you can take in such things as ice sculpting, theatre and music. Special events include boot hockey with members of Les Canadiennes, live band karaoke, singers Soran Dussaigne and Andie Duquette previously from La Voix, and kids’ entertainer Annie Broccoli.
Besides all that you can do snowshoeing, dog sled rides, axe throwing, skaters path, Ice Ship, Polar Circus, Robin des neige, Big Jump, giant foosball, and zip-line. Most of these types of activities either charge or require purchase of an Accropass (see below) to participate. There is also food available on site from vendors like Subway, Tim Hortons, Beaver Tails, Choco-Bar, Choco-Churros, and others. On site there are also several warm up sites.
Most important is that it is free admission to the site. No excuse to not attend.
