Fête des neiges de Montréal 2016


Warm up with old-fashioned curling!
Saturday and Sunday
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. - On the Fête des neiges outdoor site

During the Weekends from January 16 to February 7, 2016, a variety of winter activities are offered to the public on the outdoor area at parc Jean-Drapeau. Enjoy free performances and chill out by participating in many paid and free activities. A team of the Stewart Museum's interpreter guides will be present near cirque polaire in order to propose you to play to old-fashioned curling, a sport introduced by the Scottish soldiers who accompanied the troops of General Wolfe around 1759. At that time, they played with rocks on frozen lakes and rivers.

For the location of the old-fashioned curling, see the online site map (in French only).
