Feb 17-26 Embrace the spirit of winter at the 43rd annual Festival du Voyageur. Spot spectacular snow sculptures on site during the popular ten-day festival which celebrates Métis music, food and culture. Visit Fort Gibraltar or warm up inside cozy tents with authentic French-Canadian fare like pea soup and maple taffy. Watch musicians fiddle and jig, explore the snow maze, or dare the toboggan run. In the evenings, sip “caribou” wine at the snow bar or rock out to high-energy Francophone bands. Voyageur (Whittier) Park, 866 Joseph St, 204-237-7692.
