Festivals & Events

As anyone who has attended a Winnipeg festival will tell you, The Peg knows how to throw a party. Whether it is a downtown street festival where the streets close to traffic and open up for our crowds and fabulous food trucks, to the global gatherings that are our massive Folk Festival and Folkorama, to Festival du Voyageur’s celebration of winter and our French flavour, Winnipeg gets crowds together for ridiculously fun times no matter the season.
