Winter Carnival

It is the premier festival of Quebec. This active 17-day event features ice sculpting contests, parades, fireworks, canoe and dog sled races, and a large ice palace is built each year for the occasion.

History in brief

The French settled Quebec in 1608. In 1759, they lost a battle for Quebec to the British. The latter then governed it until 1867 when Canada became an independent country.

Clearly French

Despite over 100 years of British sovereignty, Quebec has remained predominantly French in spirit, culture, cuisine, and language.
