18 new slides for the Fête des neiges de Montréal 2019
Fête des neiges de Montréal 2019 – The Société du parc Jean-Drapeau is pleased to announce the complete program of activities for the 36th edition of the highly popular Fête des neiges de Montréal, which will be held on four consecutive weekends from January 19 to February 10, 2019.
Enjoy winter at its finest
A must-attend winter event in Montréal, the Fête des neiges offers a wide array of outdoor, mostly free activities geared toward sports and entertainment, along with shows and special events.
Accompanied by our colourful crew of animators and entertainers, this is a wonderful opportunity to indulge in some winter magic. Whether it’s from the top of the majestic Ice Boat, putting you to the test on the Ninja Huskies’ Course or engaging in a friendly Giant Foosball game, the Fête des neiges will quickly have you embracing the invigorating cold and enjoying an absolutely awesome experience the entire family will long remember.
Sliding is in the limelight
The Frosty Slides, a major new feature this year, is sure to provide an incomparable sliding experience. Consisting of 18 lanes made entirely of ice, these diverse sliding paths that have been set up at the base of Mont Boullé will provide loads of fun for tiny tots as well as the more daring sliders.
The Frosty Slides are accessible with the purchase of the Sliding Pass which provides unlimited access to the activity during the eight days of the event. The Pass also has other advantages, such as free admission to the Stewart Museum and the Biosphère, Environment Museum.
A one-of-a-kind ambiance
Throughout the duration of the Fête, a variety of artists will be delivering outdoor, on-stage performances which will add to the event’s festive ambiance. The artists scheduled to perform include Atchoum et ses microbes, Cool Kids, Ari Cui Cui, Duo Trad and QW4RTZ. Adults will be able to relive their youth through a special show marking the 50-year history of Télé-Québec, where seven personalities who were part of the network’s programming over the years will be reuniting on stage.
Meanwhile, ice sculptor Nicolas Godon, who puts on a show that has been a signature event at the Fête des neiges for several years, will be astounding the public with his daily spontaneous artistic performances and a demonstration of ice sculpturing in which spectators will be invited to interact and help him in his craft.
The party continues along until you get to the Zone Faim de Loup, where traditional artists will perform in an intimate setting for festival-goers who are there for a well-deserved break and an opportunity to enjoy some delicious comfort food at one of the many food concessions on site.
