THE WORLD’S COLDEST FESTIVAL HOLDS ONTO ITS TITLE IN 2021 THIS WINTER; IT’S REIMAGINED, DIGITAL, AND FREE!
Igloofest will have a strong presence in Montreal this winter with a new, reimagined format adapted to public health guidelines. Forced to postpone 15th anniversary celebrations until 2022, the world’s coldest festival will go on this year, with a special digital edition unlike any other. Many surprises and special content are in store, all to be revealed shortly.
That’s not all! As a treat for fans, the iconic Montreal festival is launching its online shop today, December 9th, where official merchandise will be available for purchase in limited quantities. Some noteworthy items include this year’s edition of the classic toque sold on-site each year, as well as Igloofest hockey jerseys. Another first this year is a partnership between Igloofest and Montreal-based Robin des bas; for each pair of socks sold in our online shop, another pair will be donated to people experiencing homelessness. Igloofest gives you a generous idea for stocking stuffers and for a good cause, too!
Keeping with tradition, the festival has some surprises planned, as well as some special content for Igloofestivalgoers starting in January. Programming for Igloofest 2.021 will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
But wait, there’s more! Between now and next year’s 15th anniversary celebrations, Igloofest will share funny video capsules and throwbacks from years past. Available online, they will give hardcore ice warriors a chance to relive the greatest moments from the world’s coldest festival in the comfort of their own home, and tide them over until we can all get together again in 2022.
