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. All the planning and organizing is geared to generating a sincere and friendly atmosphere of Northern hospitality.
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. Many festivals have used the theme and organizational structure of the Trappers’ Festival, and have looked to the managers and organizers of this event for information and assistance.
