Return to homepage - Tuques Bleues Celebration


By becoming a partner of Les amis de la montagne, you help preserve Montreal’s most cherished heritage site. Event profits are reinvested in conservation programs on Mount Royal.

Thanks to the funds raised through the Tuques Bleues Celebration, we continue our environmental conservation activities on Mount Royal in order to help maintain its biodiversity and to address issues relating to the spread of invasive exotic species, climate change, pollution and the intensive use of public space.

The Tuques Bleues Celebration is a unique, spectacular and magical night time event in the great outdoors that allows participants the opportunity to rediscover and appreciate the mountain’s charms. The evening recalls the celebrated torchlight snowshoe hikes led by 19th Century sporting clubs that features a timed race and a walk in snowshoes through the mountain forest with a medal and prize ceremony and a gastronomic buffet at the Mount Royal Chalet.

The event, held each year in February as part of Montréal en lumière, gathers close to 600 participants and provides you and your employees with a unique opportunity to join this important conservation initiative in the heart of Montreal. You can support this event in a variety of ways:

  • Become a sponsor
  • Make a donation in the amount of your choice
  • Form a team by purchasing tickets ($250) - Ten, twenty or thirty members of your choice!
  • Become a Défi Équipes partner

We offer a variety of visibility options that you will find described in the Sponsorship plan.

For information on partnership possibilities, please contact Katie Whitehead at 514 843-8240, ext. 243.
