Friday, february 8th 2019 marks the start of the traditional Quebec Winter Carnival, a diverse program of many activities bound to delight young and not-so-young alike!
In 1954, a group of Quebec City businessmen decided to bring the Carnival back to further the region's economic development. The first edition of the modern Quebec Winter Carnival took place in 1955, and Bonhomme was chosen as its representative. Very soon, the Carnival became a must-see for the local population and a crucial driver of tourism in the city. Nowadays, the Quebec Winter Carnival is a major winter event and an engine driving the Quebec economy and lifestyle during the cold season.
Throughout the years, the Carnival enhanced its program with many winter sports and activities derived from the traditional Québécois way of life. Over time, the event created its own rich universe and traditions inspired by its French-Canadian roots.
