A character developed in 1954
The Québec Winter Carnival Mascot Resembling a snowman with a red cap and arrowhead sash, Bonhomme Carnaval is the symbol of the world's greatest winter event: the Québec Carnival. A creation imagined by Louis-Philippe Plamondon and initiated in 1954, Bonhomme is seen as the Carnival ambassador and brings joy to Quebecers.
Recognizable by his booming voice, Bonhomme Carnaval is very popular amongst Canadians, and more especially with Quebecers. A number of songs have been written in his honour, and every year he is welcomed as a star by both young and old.
