The Quebec Carnival finds its roots in the first inhabitants of New France. Indeed, at that time, celebrating the “hardship of the fast” just before Easter among family and friends quickly became a tradition and was already referred to as a carnival.
From January 30 to February 15, 2015, come experience one of the world’s largest winter carnivals in beautiful Québec City. Every year, thousands of visitors flock to the Quebec Winter Carnival to enjoy a host of activities for all ages, including snow baths, night parades, sliding, giant foosball, snow sculptures, shows, sleigh rides and skating. The Carnival is a unique winter experience you won’t want to miss! To top it off, all the major activities are walking distance from the Hotel Le Cap Diamant.
