Free Activity: Winterfest at FortWhyte Alive

January 16, 2019

A celebration of all things winter.

Join Winnipeggers for a day outside to experience and celebrate all that winter has to offer. FortWhyte Alive is yours to explore — whether you hike, snowshoe, ski, slide or skate is up to you!

Learn to cross-country ski with certified ski instructors, or try snowshoeing or hiking through the woods. The toboggan slide will be open for the thrill seekers, and the skating rink polished for those who prefer classic winter fun. Try your hand at ice fishing, and win a prize or two — There will be a drop-in Mini Ice Fishing Tournament for ages 14 and under. Win great prizes for your catch, or just for trying.

This family-friendly event is sure to entertain all interests and abilities.

Bring your own skates. All other equipment provided, while supplies last.
