February 17 – 26, 2012
In addition to being Western Canada’s largest winter festival, Festival du Voyageur is also “The World’s Largest Kitchen Party”!
This unique ten-day festival celebrates the joie de vivre of Voyageurs from the fur trade era. It also showcases French-Canadian culture, traditional cuisine, a host of musical entertainment, and jigging and fiddling contests. With its magnificent snow sculptures, Festival du Voyageur also celebrates winter fun with lots of outdoor activities for the entire family.
The great winter gathering is held every February in St. Boniface, the heart of Winnipeg’s French quarter!
