Winnipeg’s annual 10-day winter festival, Le Festival du Voyageur (Festival of the Traveller), will take place from February 14 – 23, 2014.
This year marks Festival du Voyageur’s 45th anniversary, and to commemorate all the great years we’ve had we will once again do our utmost best to help Manitobans celebrate winter in style! From February 14 to February 23, 2014, come visit Voyageur Park and our various official sites to bask in the joviality of French Canadian culture. Surrounded by great music, amazing foods and wondrous sights, you will have no choice but to re-embody the spirit of the voyageurs!
Every winter since 1970, Saint-Boniface, Winnipeg’s French quarter, is transformed into a winter paradise and becomes host to the largest winter festival in Western Canada. Voyageur, Métis and First Nations histories are brought back to life, not only through the historical interpretation offered inside reconstructed Fort Gibraltar, but also through the many attractions inside Voyageur Park and at the festival’s various official sites. Music of old, traditional cuisine, sensational snow sculptures and captivating shows are but a few examples of the entertainment you can expect to witness during this convivial gathering. Offering a vast array of historical, recreational and educational activities, Festival du Voyageur has something for all tastes and all ages!
