Although the ideal time depends entirely on the kind of experience you’re looking for, the best time to visit Quebec City is during Summer (June - September) and Winter (December - February). For the cheapest reservations, one should visit Quebec City in November, and the best time to avoid the crowd is during January. During the summer season, the weather in Quebec is warm and sometimes quite humid. Temperatures can soar as high as 40 degrees. Summertime in Quebec City also brings in Canada’s largest outdoor music festival, ‘Festival d'été de Québec’. Other fun events during the summers include a free circus show, ‘Les Grands Feux Loto-Québec’, which is a fireworks display, and many more fun events. During winters in Quebec City, temperatures tend to dip past the zero degrees mark, but even then, the city tends to be bustling with tourists. Since the temperatures go way past the zero degrees mark, you need to make extra efforts to pack a lot of woollens to keep you warm. Quebec City winters are mostly popular for its famous Winter Carnival: Carnaval de Québec, which hosts a variety of fun activities.
