Northern Manitoba Trapper's Festival
The Northern Manitoba Trappers' Festival, held annually in The Pas retains the flavour and celebrations of a diverse cultural heritage of the northern pioneer. The skills and activities exemplified by the pioneers are brought to life in a week of events designed to generate sincere and genuine hospitality and friendship found throughout the north.

Other notable activities are the arts & crafts show, amateur talent show, children's shows, the Fur Queen Competition, senior's events, mini-festivals, parade, pancake breakfasts, tea houses, evening rendezvous and beer fest. Information and souvenirs are available daily at the Trappers' Headquarters.
