3rd Annual Carberry Heritage Festival

Friday and Saturday, August 7 and 8, 2015

CARBERRY FESTIVAL 2014 032

Arthur Ingram and Chuck Vidness, two members of the Manitoba Muzzleloaders Association, at the 2014 festival reveal what life was like when the town was founded around 1885. They demonstrated the loading and firing of long guns, the height of personal weaponry until the bullet was invented.

The Red Coats of the North West, a North West Mounted Police re-enactment troupe, will make their first festival appearance in 2015, offering a glimpse at specific events in Manitoba history. 

Our Friday night old-time dance with Mark Morisseau and his band has become a festival tradition. Mark is a local fiddler whose style echoes his Métis forebears of a hundred years ago.

Another festival tradition is celebrating the birthday of naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton at The Seton Centre. Seton spent ten years studying and writing in the Carberry area. He’ll be 155 years old in 2015.

As we confirm more artisans, events and performers for the 2015 festival, we will update this post. Check back later or Follow our blog and get an email every time we add a new post.
