Festivals and events

Every year, Winnipeg plays host to over 130 festivals and special events. These include the Winnipeg Folk Festival; Folklorama, the largest multicultural festival in North America; and the Festival du Voyageur, the largest winter festival in Western Canada. Dubbed the "world's largest kitchen party", the Festival du Voyageur is a celebration of Franco-Manitoban culture, heritage and joie de vivre. It is no coincidence that the words "Friendly Manitoba" appear on our license plates!


Festival du Voyageur

In addition to being Western Canada’s largest winter festival, Festival du Voyageur is also “The World’s Largest Kitchen Party”!
