Westman Multicultural Festival

About 2018-01-10T16:29:04+00:00

From its early beginnings 15 years ago, the renamed Westman Multicultural Festival continues the tradition of the earlier Lieutenant Governor’s Winter Festival and Brandon Winter Festival.

We are pleased to present the new website along with social media on Instagram, Facebook and twitter with the handle @wmmfest or wmmfest.

A new committee is organizing the festival this year; the new name reflects all of Westman and its growing multicultural roots.

A huge event like this takes time to organize, with many different players involved; we are posting information as it becomes available.

Look for online and print advertising, along with news, TV and radio information in the coming days and weeks. This will lead up to the Festival starting Thursday, February 1st and running until the late evening of Saturday, February 3rd.

There are seven exciting Pavilions from England, Honduras, Ireland, Mauritius, Philippines, Scotland, Ukraine and new additions India, Metis and Mexico.  A map of the Pavilions can be found here. Information on each pavilion is available on the website and on social media.

We hope everyone comes out and enjoys the Westman Multicultural Festival again this year!  It is going to be a great event to break-up this frosty season and unite us as a community.
