Canada's Capital Region
Ottawa, Ontario K1P 1C7

Every February, Canada’s Capital Region is host to Winterlude, North America’s greatest winter celebration. Three fun-filled weekends of excitement and activity await the whole family! From spectacular ice carvings to an amazing playground made of snow, Winterlude is a great way to take in the best of our Canadian winter.

Skate on the world’s largest skating rink — right in the heart of Ottawa! Marvel at majestic snow sculptures and glittering ice sculptures or groove to energetic rhythms at American Express Snowbowl. Our mascots, the Ice Hog Family, are waiting for you in Canada’s Capital Region, from February 1 to 17, 2008.

Most Winterlude activities are free.
