''Bonhomme Carnaval'' shares you the best
When the city wears its big white coat, there's always an activity waiting for you ! Follow Bonhomme's top 5 of things to do this winter in Quebec City.
- Québec Winter Carnival: “Take a moment and stop by my majestic ice palace, located right in the heart of the city. Discover all the classic Winter Carnival events, like the ice canoe race, night parades, and famous snow sculpture competition. Pick up an Effigy for access to all the exclusive Carnival sites.”
- A stroll through Old-Quebec: “I adore walking through Old Québec when a light snow is falling, admiring the European style architecture and the magic of the lights in the Petit-Champlain District. I usually stop by a café for a cup of hot cocoa—even Bonhomme needs to warm up every now and then!”
- Snow Sliding: “There’s nothing better than sliding down a hill to make the most of winter! In Québec City, there’s even a toboggan run on the Dufferin Terrace, right in front of the Château Frontenac. You won’t believe the view! Hold on to your tuques—you’re in for a Bonhomme of a ride!”
- Hôtel de Glace (Ice Hotel): “Québec City’s ice hotel is simply the best ice-spot going! You’ll feel right at home—I know I do! Come for a cozy night’s stay or just a visit to admire the ice-tastic architecture. It’s out of this world! But hurry—it won’t make it to the summer!''
- Nature at your doorstep: “Dive head first into winter and enjoy Québec’s natural splendour with a day of skiing! There are several mountains just kilometres from downtown, all groomed up and ready to go. With snow, fresh air, and skiing of all sorts, there’s something for everyone!”

Open until November 20th, 2016
As part of the 350th anniversary of Notre-Dame de Québec, to build a Holy Door in the Basilica-Cathedral is an exceptional privilege authorized by the Holy See to the first Catholic parish in North America, north of Mexico. This door is a symbol of communion with the universal Church.
The Holy Door is first of all a real door, pierced in the wall of the Chapel of the Sacred Heart on the north side of the Basilica Notre-Dame de Québec.
A Holy Door is a symbol of oneness with the Universal Church. It is also a symbol of convocation, an invitation to persons of good will to enter, whatever their religious denominations. It is a visual symbol of internal renewal, which begins with the willing desire to make peace with God, reconcile with your neighbors, restore in yourself everything that has been damaged in the past, and reshape your heart through conversion.
The Holy Door serves to remind today’s pilgrims of all those who came before us to bring the Catholic faith from France to “New France.” May it serve as a visible sign of faith for future generations.
Holy Door opening hours
In 2015 and 2016, the Holy Door is open from 8:45 a.m. to 8:15 p.m. until September 1, 2016, and from 8:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. from September 2 to November 20, 2016. On November 20, 2016, the Holy Door will be closed and sealed. It will become an object of devotion for pilgrims and will open again only during Holy Years, about every 25 years.
There is no charge for passing through the Holy Door. However, offerings will be gratefully accepted for the upkeep of the Notre-Dame de Québec Basilica-Cathedral and its art and religious heritage.
