Brandon

Brings You Back.

There’s something about Manitoba’s second largest city: it’s a place where you’ll instantly feel at home and be welcomed like an old friend. Explore the riverbank, discover a new festival, experience the city’s historic downtown and see why Brandon brings you back.

Hello Wheat City

Brandon’s agricultural roots are evident in this city built on the banks of the Assiniboine River. Events big and small, which often feature horses, livestock and other farmyard friends, fill Brandon’s Keystone Centre. Here you can also catch the on-ice action of future hockey stars playing for the WHL’s Brandon Wheat Kings.

Learn about Brandon’s history at museums that showcase its pioneer past and military connection. Visit an art gallery to see the landscape interpreted by locals or pose in front of brightly coloured murals that complement the ghost signs painted on the side of heritage buildings.

Explore the 17 kilometres of trail along the riverbank or explore those just outside the city. Brandon Hills is an all-season playground, especially loved by mountain bikers. Hike along the self-guided trail in nearby Grand Valley Provincial Park to learn about the historical bison hunt and its significance to Indigenous people of the area.

In The Spotlight

While Winnipeg is accustomed to seeing trailers, lights and crews set up in the Exchange District or along Wellington Crescent, here are five smaller cities throughout Manitoba whose buildings have served as backdrops on some major motion pictures.
