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!
