The Festival des Neiges of Montreal is an annual event that takes place every year on several weekends at Parc Jean Drapeau. There are a lot of winter activities and what’s even better is that there are several that are free as the entrance that is completely free. There are tube slides, dog sled tours, zip lines, skating, shows, music; among others. There is also a special section for younger children that closes a little before (17:00). This year the event will take place from January 20th to February 11th.
The best way to arrive is by metro and go down in Hean-Drapeau Station.
For paid activities, you can buy the Accropass which will give you unlimited access for the duration of the festival.
Children under 4 years do not pay and there is the possibility of buying a family package a little cheaper for 4 people.
Saturday is open from 10 am to 8 pm and on Sundays from 10 am to 5 pm.
