Festivals abound in Winnipeg, Manitobas largest city during the summer. These events include the Winnipeg International Childrens Festival with daily shows of music, dance, and hands on activities, the Jazz Winnipeg Festival in mid June, the Winnipeg Fringe Festival and Folkorama , one of the largest and longest running multicultural celebrations in the world. There is also the Winnipeg Folk Festival held in Birds Hill Provincial Park and provides audiences with a large variety of music including bluegrass, Celtic, world beat, folk, blues, childrens entertainment, and much more. From the time the lights go up for the opening concert Thursday evening until the last refrain of the grand finale Sunday night, we promise you the opportunity to hear and discover some of the finest musicians on the planet.
Outside the big city, the Icelandic Festival of Manitoba or Islendingadagurinn is an opportunity for the residents of Gimli, Manitoba to celebrate their Icelandic heritage with New Iceland music, poetry and cultural activities. It coincides with the Gimli Film Festival where films are screened on a beach overlooking Lake Winnipeg.
Manitoba has Lake Winnipeg which is the fifth largest freshwater lake in Canada, but it is relatively shallow. It is the twelfth largest freshwater lake on Earth. It is the largest lake within the borders of southern Canada, and it is part of the most undeveloped and pristine large watershed of southern Canada. The east side of the lake has pristine boreal forests and rivers that are being promoted as a potential United Nations World Heritage Park. The lake is elongated in shape, and is 416 km from north to south, with remote sandy beaches, large limestone cliffs, and many bat caves in some areas. Manitoba Hydro uses the lake as one of the largest reservoirs in the world. There are many islands in the lake, and most of them are undeveloped and pristine. This giant and remote lake has tremendous ecotourism potential, with nothing else quite like it in southern Canada and in Manitoba. This lake is a unique geological and geographical area that is largely undeveloped, and quite a rare ecological gem in the world today.
