"Free Your Spirit" and enjoy a weekend of music, art, nature, and community at the 8th annual festival, just 40 minutes west of Winnipeg and 5 minutes southeast of Portage la Prairie. Now, two days of music and two nights of camping!
Share in the warmth of an authentic grassroots festival, featuring some of the very best Manitoba musicians playing over an entire weekend.
Experience the true heart and spirit of the prairies while walking the winding nature trails, enjoying the wild pollinator garden, and discovering the magical assortment of trees in a cozy, pastoral setting.
Dance the night away, bring an instrument and join a jam session, or hang out in the quaint red barn between mainstage shows. Fun for all ages!
Check out the interactive workshops and family-friendly programming, plus "Artisan Alley" featuring a variety of local artwork and handmade gems.
