Festival du Voyageur 2021, Winnipeg, Canada
February 12 - February 21
The largest winter festival in Western Canada, the Festival du Voyageur, or “Festival of the Traveller” for the non-Francophones out there, is a celebration of all things wintry.
Held every February in St Boniface, Winnipeg’s French District, the festival draws around 95,000 travellers every year to enjoy the French-Canadian and Métis heritage and culture of Manitoba. The 2021 festival is still slated to proceed despite Covid. Details of the special measures in place and the programme of events can be found here.
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’.
