Just in time for Christmas, take advantage of the ACCROPASSE pre-sale and give your loved ones a memorable winter experience!
MONTRÉAL, Dec. 13, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - It is with enthusiasm and excitement that the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau officially announced yesterday the programming and the new features of the 35th edition of the Fête des neiges de Montréal, presented by Tim Hortons.
Since a snow fest without much snow just would not be the same, the start of this year's festivities has been pushed back a week from the past years' schedule to allow visitors to enjoy weather conditions that are more conducive to winter activities. As a result, the 2018 edition will be held at Parc Jean-Drapeau over four consecutive weekends, from January 20 to February 11.
Activities and shows for the entire family
Artists will be performing on stage throughout the Fête des neiges, putting on outdoor shows in an invigorating winter environment. Meanwhile, on these four festive weekends, people of all ages will be able to indulge in more than 20 different activities, most of which are free, including several new features that the entire family will enjoy.
Challenge your fear of heights by bravely making the Big Jump. Bring out the lumberjack in you and come try your luck at Axe throwing. Or set out on adventure on the Mont Boulé to discover the history of the Parc as you travel on the trail Two islands, a park, and a city...
For a well-deserved break, visit the Zone Faim de loup to grab a bite and enjoy intimate music performances from traditional artists.
