Festival du Voyageur

Western Canada's Largest Winter Festival

February 17th to 26th 2023

This unique ten-day celebration, reliving the fur trade era, is held each February in St. Boniface, Winnipeg’s French Quarter. It celebrates the joie de vivre of the fur traders. It’s a place of sights, ceremony, and celebration – a reflection of Canada’s unique French-Canadian heritage, and a showcase of historic and cultural treasures. Events include snow sculptures, over 150 shows, an outdoor winter paradise, historic interpretation in a rebuilt fur trade fort, French-Canadian cuisine and lots of ‘joie de vivre’.
