Join us for a unique, day-long (noon to 8:00 PM) event at Lower Fort Garry National Historic site.

Inside the historic fort, Harvest Fest will provide visitors with the opportunity to watch and participate in a variety of workshops, supplementary historic activities, and learn how early settlers and local Cree and Ojibway people prepared for winter in the 19th century. On the picnic grounds near the visitors’ centre, the Manitoba Makers Market will offer kiosks for makers, creators, tinkerers, and farmers, showcasing made by hand, original works. In addition, there will be a wide variety of food trucks on the site to provide a diverse selection of fare for everyone.

Admission to both the historic grounds and the market will be FREE throughout the day!

As the sun sets, continue the adventure by attending Glitter by the River. A party like no other on the historic grounds, benefiting the Andrew Henderson Memorial Scholarship. Good food, great local beer, and amazing tunes to dance the night away. Plus, a special ‘sparkly’ surprise for all at the end of the night! This event is only $10!

The Manitoba Makers Market & Harvest Fest is held in support of the Friends of Lower Fort Garry, a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to supporting Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site. We endeavour to promote Canada’s natural and cultural heritage through awareness, educational, and sensory experiences. In particular, we operate the Adventurers’ Day Camp, in partnership with Nova House and Inclusion Selkirk, offering day camp for children of families in need.

We invite everyone to come out and experience what we hope will become a wonderful annual summer tradition – Harvest Fest.
