You know it’s summer in Manitoba when there is a fair scheduled for every single weekend.

Nothing says summer like sticky cotton candy hands and wandering the fair ground debating about who will ride The Zipper. Summer schedules are being released and the full list is being updated here with more details in the events listings soon. How many mini donuts will be eaten? Only time will tell. Rides, games and fair food galore – we are pumped about Manitoba summer fairs and carnivals!

All the fairs generally run Friday evenings to Sunday evening or Mondays if it’s a long weekend. And they usually have a great selection of rides for little kids, so everyone can have some fun. Take lots of water and sunscreen, and, of course, some treat money for ice cream or food truck fare. Have an amazing time!
