46th Annual Festival du Voyageur starts February 13 to 22, 2015. Over 130 artists will be showcased at Voyageur Park as well as in our 9 other official sites during the 10 days of the Festival!

This year, Festival du Voyageur offers, for the very first time, nightly activities between the four walls of Fort Gibraltar! The Bar Gibraltar presented by Jägermeister will be a new late-night area at the Park. Festival-goers will have the opportunity to dance to the DJ beats, warm up around the bonfires and be amazed by the fire jugglers! The Fort will be open February 14, 15, 20 and 21 from 9:15 p.m. to midnight. This venue is open to all ages.

Voyageur Park is the ideal location in which to celebrate winter! The young ones can enjoy a the winter playground with snow forts, slides, voyageur adventures, hills to climb, instruments, games, horse sleigh rides, a giant igloo and much more! Adults can participate in one of the many free snowshoe workshops, relax at the Liquor Mart Snow Bar, shop for unique items in the Souvenir Tent or take part in the Voyageur Apprentice Workshops and learn more about Manitoba’s history at Fort Gibraltar.

To celebrate Louis Riel Day, on February 16, Festival du Voyageur offers a day full of programming. There will be loads of activities at Fort Gibraltar, such as traditional trades and crafts demonstrations, fiddling and jigging workshops, and much more. We will also create the largest ‘living’ Métis flag ever! Festival du Voyageur will provide free attire to the public in order to create the flag colors.

Festival du Voyageur offers a free shuttle service in order to lessen traffic around Voyageur Park and to enhance the visitor experience. The shuttle’s trajectory will take it from Centre LaVérendrye (614, Des Meurons street), to Université de Saint-Boniface (entrance on Despins St.), to Voyageur Park. The shuttle will stop every 20 minutes at these designated stops.
