WINNIPEG — Festival du Voyageur, Winnipeg’s biggest winter festival, kicks off in one month.

The theme for the 46th annual festival is World’s Largest Kitchen Party.

The festival will showcase 130 artists this year. For the first time during the long-running event, there will be activities in the four walls of Fort Gibraltar, not just the grounds.

The winter playground will be back, where there will be slides, voyageur activities and horse-drawn sleigh rides.

Festival du Voyageur runs Feb. 13-22.
