Midst of Winter
The events and activities of the Trappers’ Festival have continued since 1916, making this Manitoba’s oldest festival and one of Canada’s oldest winter festivals.
The Trappers’ Festival, held in The Pas in the midst of winter, is an event of interest and enjoyment for many people.
The intent of the Festival is to celebrate the heritage and culture of the northern pioneer and to preserve many of the skills and entertainments inherent to them by basing the celebrations and competitions on those activities.
