Festival du Voyageur: Western Canada’s Premier Winter Festival


The Festival du Voyageur is Western Canada’s largest winter festival taking place in February each year. This annual event celebrates the French heritage and culture of Canada, and pays tribute to the fur traders known as voyageurs who once travelled the country by canoe.

During the festival, you’ll have the chance to witness authentic cultural performances by First Nations peoples, listen to traditional French-Canadian music, and enjoy delicious traditional cuisines. The festival also features stunning ice sculptures in Voyageur Park, creating a magical atmosphere.

In addition to these cultural experiences, the Festival du Voyageur is a great opportunity to embrace the spirit of winter and all that the season has to offer. Whether you love skiing or just enjoy the crisp winter air, there’s something for everyone at this festival. From giant snow sculptures to live music and dancing, there’s always something happening to keep you entertained.

If you’re staying with us at the Hotel Fort Garry during the festival, we highly recommend setting aside a few days to fully immerse yourself in this unique event. You’ll get to experience the cultural richness of the Festival du Voyageur and meet people from all over the country who come together for food, fellowship, and fun.

Overall, the Festival du Voyageur is a truly memorable and one-of-a-kind event that you won’t want to miss. Whether you’re interested in Canada’s history, trying delicious French-Canadian cuisine, or simply having a great time in the winter weather, there’s something for everyone at this fantastic festival. We hope you’ll visit us at the Hotel Fort Garry in February for a celebration you’ll never forget.
