Portage la Prairie Winter Folk Fest
February in Canada can be pretty melancholy. If you are anything like us, we are ready for spring and for a little less snow. Even though we might be feeling blue, there are plenty of exciting events to check out to help cheer us all up. One of these events is the Portage la Prairie Winter Folk Fest. This year is the third annual Folk Fest and it just keeps getting better with more local singers and songwriters and plenty of opportunity to get in a better mood.
The Portage la Prairie Winter Folk Fest started in 2013. It provides a fun winter retreat to warm your mind, body and soul. It is in the middle of February to help get rid of those winter blues. It is held downtown at the large historic Trinity United Church in Portage la Prairie. This church provides the perfect environment because of its acoustics and welcoming feel. Even though the festival expands each year, they still make an effort to make the event feel intimate and enjoyable experience.
The festival is a non-profit organization that aims to connect local and regional folk music community. This year the Winter Folk Fest is taking place on February 8th , 2015 starting at 1:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. The children under 12 are free, students 13 and above are $15 (with academic institution ID required for students 18 and older) and adult tickets are $20. Even if folk music isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other activities to participate in. There will be snacks and refreshments available throughout the day, including chili, coffee, hot chocolate, biscotti and more.
