Last week of 2007 - New Years in Quebec

by mattreider

Ladies and Gentlemen of Quebec;

My wife is a kindergarten teacher, so one of our travel traditions is traveling for New Year's Eve. This year, we're headed for Quebec City.

Will Quebec be open, or will everything shut down (restaurants, museums, etc) for the winter holiday?

One of our great loves during traveling is meeting with VT members, we could meet with the same person or different people every night of the week and be satisfied with our travels. Will any VT members be available for some cold-weather fun?

We don't really know too much French (ok, we can say "hello, some beer please, and do you speak english." Is this okay?

We are looking forward to ringing in the 400th year of Quebec city, what exactly is scheduled for the evening of the 31st?

I've only been to Quebec City in May, but I have been to Montreal for New Years and can safely say everything is open for NYE, definitely. Restaurants will be packed. New Year's Day, however, may be an entirely different matter. Regardless, Quebec City is all about tourism, and the hospitality industry there, at least in Vieux "Old" Quebec, is accustomed to dealing with English-speaking tourists, so you shouldn't really have any problems.

Since you're not getting any replies here, I suggest you also post your questions on the Tripadvisor Quebec City forum. Way more active Quebec City locals there who can tell you exactly what to expect.

Bonjour!

Here are a few answers to your questions, which I hope will help you plan your trip to Quebec City. Restaurants will be open for sure, and most museums and boutiques will be open except on Christmas Day. Not speaking French is rarely a problem, at least not in the Old City. I'm not exactly sure where I will be comes Christmas time, but if I happen to be around it would be fun to meet up so just send me an e-mail! And finally, the 400th anniversary kick off event will take place at Place d'Youville. Here's the link to the Website if you need more info: http://www.monquebec2008.com/MonQuebec2008/?module=events&id=1&eventid=281

Cheers,

Travel Tips for Quebec

Chateau Frontenac

by GUYON

See the Chateau Frontenac which is an hotel. It is the result of a mix of a Scottish Manor and a Loire Valley Castle. It was built between the 1893 and 1923.

Erected on the Duferrin Terrasse, it is becomen the symbol of Quebec city. In the inner court, there is an engraved stone from the former Saint Louis Castle.

Quebec blooms

by acemj

One characteristic that I noticed over and over again was the beautiful and abundant flowers blossoming around town. I'm sure winter has its own special charm, but I was glad to see Quebec City in bloom.

Language

by sticki

Residents of Quebec speak French. Signs, menus, literature, etc will be in French. But almost everything will also be in English, and almost everyone is bilingual. If you can speak some French, the locals will greatly appreciate it and will politely help you with the language. They'll be more than happy to help in English if you get stuck, but do as much in French as you can. It's a very comfortable setting to practice in. The accent is a little rougher than some European French accents, or Montreal for that matter, but I think they're used to novice francophones and will probably make an effort to speak clearly.

It gets HOT during summertime!

by Jefie

Some people seem to think that Quebec City is about 10 miles away from the North Pole. True, it gets really cold during winter, February usually being the coldest month. But if you're visiting during summer, think about packing a few more t-shirts and forget about your winter boots - it gets hot over here! If you take into account the humidity factor, it is not rare to see temperatures rise above 40°C (over 100°F) - not quite the temperature polar bears go for! ;o)

Carnaval de Quebec # 10 - Bonhomme

by jamiesno

The Quebec Winter Carnival has gained international fame over the years through its renowned key figure, Bonhomme Carnaval. Celebrity personality of the celebration, Bonhomme is a recurring figure during all the activities. He is the living incarnation of the snowmen that have enchanted Quebec children for generations. Bonhomme Carnaval is the ambassador of this celebration to foreigners, and is the symbol of the festivities of this joyous period of the year. Bonhomme proudly wears the traditional red hat and belt. Bonhomme was conceptualised in 1954 and since 1955, date of the first annual edition of the Carnival, has personified the joie de vivre associated with this winter celebration.

I only got to see him once and there was a flood of kids getting their picture taken with him so this is the best I could do :-)
