Celebrate Manitoba

Manitoba’s annual cultural festivals honour our past, reflecting the diversity of our heritage and the span of our creativity.  They contribute to Manitoba’s pride of place and act as a means to help build our identity, share knowledge, bridge differences and enhance social cohesion.  These special events also nurture and showcase the creativity and artistic excellence of Manitobans, while they support local economies, generate tourism and raise our profile regionally, nationally and internationally.  For these reasons, the Celebrate Manitoba program distinguishes long-running annual cultural festivals for their achievements in reaching significant anniversaries, and their longstanding contributions to the well-being of Manitobans and their communities. The award consists of a provincial media release announcing the designation and the presentation of a framed certificate or laser engraved plaque.
