It's cold. It's February. It's Winnipeg. It's Festival! Festival du Voyageur, that is.
For anyone who hasn't been to Festival since mandatory trip in elementary school (I was absolutely terrified of the dog sled teams), go. Not only is it fun and a different thing to do, it's also dripping with fantastic concerts. This year features bands like Dominique Reynolds, Justin Lacroix Band, Eagle & Hawk, Billy Joe Green, D.Rangers, among many others.
This year's Festival du Voyageur kicks off on February 15 and runs until February 24 in St. Boniface. You can download the Festival du Voyageur program guide here. You can also visit the Live Music Calendar to check out the concerts.
