Heritage Festival

The Carberry Heritage Festival celebrates our town’s unique heritage, unique because Carberry has Manitoba’s only designated Heritage District as deemed by the Historic Resources Branch of the provincial government. The District features twenty-eight designated heritage buildings in a two-block span of Main Street.

Our all-ages, alcohol-free festival focuses on giving local people and those from away an opportunity to explore our built heritage and our human heritage and the relationship between them.
