In the 1930s, the Château Frontenac built its very own curling rink in this section of the Café de la Terrasse, which was then known as the Palm Court.
Do you have any similar souvenirs in your collection?

Do you have a souvenir or an old photo of the Château Frontenac in your attic? As part of the hotel’s 125th anniversary year celebrations, photos and artifacts of the hotel which may be mouldering away in your drawer or photo album, or perhaps in a trunk or box in your attic, are being sought for an exhibit and a contest.

You stand a chance of winning a prize in each of the following categories:
PHOTOS: of famous people, business colleagues, interior design and architecture, balls, weddings and special events, the Château under construction, and builders – the living strength of the Château.

OBJECTS: architectural designs and sketches, furniture, decorative accessories, costumes and uniforms and table place settings (dishes, glasses, cutlery). If you “borrowed” an ashtray or a spoon (for example) from the hotel many years ago, all will be forgiven if you are willing to participate in this contest.

Send a photo of your souvenir by email to [email protected], along with a duly completed participation form, by March 30. An exhibit of the winning artifacts and photos will take place from April 7-15 in the grand ballroom of the Château.

Good luck to everyone!
