Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Winter Carnival 2019 schedule of events


Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Winter Carnival 2019 – The City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue is proud to present its annual Winter Carnival, an institution in the West Island. Once again this year, we celebrate winter with a variety of free events and activities, both sporting and festive.

We kick off the festivities on Friday, February 1st at 6:30 pm with a family hockey night. Fans of our national sport gather at Parc Harpell for a friendly ice hockey and ball hockey competition.

On Saturday starting at noon, visitors are invited to a day of outdoor fun at the Morgan Arboretum, where the beauty of the snow-covered forest blends perfectly with the laughter of children enjoying snow sculptures, maple taffy and dog sledding.

At 6:30 pm, visitors meet on rue Sainte-Anne for the famous bed race, organized in collaboration with the Cunninghams Pub. This colourful event promises to warm up the crowd, with some help from the outdoor disco and festive bar, where music and disco lighting will ignite the dance floor.

To conclude the day, FAE Pyrotechnics will present at 8 pm “Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Dance Club”, a fireworks show created specifically for the Carnival. This presentation, offered in collaboration with Parks Canada, is always spectacular.

Sunday, all the attention is focused on the children at the Fête des Neiges at Aumais Park. Inflatable games, slides, sculptures on snow and contagious laughs will be at the rendezvous.
