What to Expect?

Admire amazing snow sculptures created by artists from around the globe, go to live music gigs, and enjoy the excellent French-Canadian cuisine, while meeting some of the historical characters that frequent Fort Gibraltar.

The Festival of the Traveller combines traditions from the past with the vitality of today’s Manitoban community.

Organisers declare this to be an unmissable ‘kitchen party’.
