Organizational Description: English to follow

Le Festival du Voyageur est un organisme à but non lucratif qui organisent de multiples évènements

À chaque hiver depuis 1970, Saint-Boniface, le quartier français de Winnipeg, se transforme en paradis hivernal et devient l'hôte du plus grand festival d'hiver dans l'Ouest canadien. Les histoires des voyageurs, des Métis et des Premières Nations sont ramenées à la vie, non seulement par l'interprétation historique offerte à l'intérieur de la reconstruction du Fort Gibraltar, mais également à travers de maintes attractions situées au Parc du voyageur ainsi qu'aux relais du festival. Offrant une panoplie d'activités historiques, récréatives et éducatives le Festival du Voyageur en a vraiment pour tous les âges et tous les goûts!
De plus, à chaque été le Fort Gibraltar ouvre ses portes aux écoles et aux publiques permettant à ses visiteurs de rencontrer une série de personnages uniques vivant au rythme de l'an 1815. Les visiteurs peuvent ainsi revivre l'époque de la traite des fourrures et la période de concurrence féroce entre la compagnie du Nord-Ouest et la Compagnie de la Baie d'Hudson.

Occasionnellement le Festival organise des évènements uniques tel que le concert de Sam Robert Bands @ Fort Gibraltar le 3 Juin 2022.
Tous ces merveilleux événements ne pourraient avoir lieu sans l'aide de nos bénévoles qui font partie de la grande famille du Festival du Voyageur.

The Festival du Voyageur is a non-profit organization that organizes multiple events.
Every winter since 1970, Saint-Boniface, the French quarter of Winnipeg, has been transformed into a winter paradise and becomes the host of the largest winter festival in Western Canada. Voyageur, Métis and First Nations histories are brought back to life, not only through the historical interpretation offered inside reconstructed Fort Gibraltar, but also through the many attractions inside Voyageur Park and at the festival's various official sites.
In addition, every summer Fort Gibraltar opens its doors to schools and the public allowing its visitors to meet a series of unique characters living to the rhythm of the year 1815. Visitors can thus relive the era of the fur trade. and the period of fierce competition between the Northwest Company and the Hudson's Bay Company.
Occasionally the Festival organizes unique events such as the Sam Robert Bands @ Fort Gibraltar concert on June 3, 2022.
All those wonderful events could not take place without the help of our volunteers who are part of the big family of the Festival du Voyageur.
