Brandon loves to celebrate the deep roots and cultural diversity that exist at the heart of the Canadian prairies, with world class venues that are host to major cultural celebrations and festivals - as well as music concerts and national sporting events! Be sure to explore this charming city that offers stunning streetscapes, beautiful green spaces, and un-expected experiences!

Plan an excursion to Brandon around any event, and book your stay in a poolside family suite, or plan for a cozy couples’ weekend in a B&B or quaint waterside cabin.

Nature lovers are invited to wander off the beaten path to find expansive hiking, biking and cross-country ski trails that offer unforgettable views; while stargazers can consider the cosmos when visiting the local astronomical observatory. A number of museums offer history buffs the chance to immerse themselves in the storylines that helped to shape the city, while fine arts lovers can find sophisticated galleries and “art happenings”, and trendsetters can find seasonal markets and pop-up shops at every corner of the city. Sports fans can expect edge-of-your-seat spectator opportunities as hopeful athletes compete for coveted pro drafts; while car enthusiasts can check out vintage, collectible and custom vehicles spring through fall.

The local culinary scene is heating up as graduates from the Manitoba Institute of Culinary Arts take over city kitchens. From haute cuisine to international food fare to a chef’s take on home-style cooking - Brandon’s local eateries are serving up culinary delight with a smile.
