The “Fête des Neiges de Montréal” is back in 2018
Snow Fest – Trust us, you won’t want to miss this Winter festival… The Montreal snow fest is a yearly Winter festival that happens in the Jean-Drapeu parc. The official programming of the 2018 edition has just been released today and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. This year, the snow has taken a while to settle, so the festival has been pushed back to January 20th until February the 11th 2018. This year’s edition will be the 35th time the snow fest will be held, so you’ll be guaranteed an thrilling Winter festival.
If you’re struggling to think of activities to attend to with your family and friends, the Montreal Snow Fest is the perfect outdoor show to make the most of the Winter while having fun in the snow. There will be local artists performing on outdoor stages during the entire festival no matter the weather conditions. Why not challenge yourself and climb up the “Big Jump”, one of the new activities offered in this year’s edition. There will also be axe throwing and snow sculpting competitions to impress your friends. Tim Hortons is sponsoring this year’s festival, so look out for their hut with lots of coffee to indulge in during the cold temperatures.
Most of the activities offered at the “Fête des Neiges” will be completely FREE of charge, however for the more challenging adventures, some fees may apply. If you purchase the “Accropasse”, you’ll be able to have access to those harder activities, which include “Ice Slides”, the “Zip-Line” and the “Big Jump”. On purchasing the “Accropasse”, you’ll be able to have FREE access to the Montreal Biosphere, the Environment Museum and the Stewart Museum. The “Fête des Neiges” festival will be open on Saturdays from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm and on Sundays from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm between January 29th and February 11th.
