Just 40 minutes west of Winnipeg and 5 minutes southeast of Portage la Prairie, the award-winning Whoop & Hollar Folk Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary! The festival was recently named a 2023 "Event of the Year" Finalist at the 2nd Annual Manitoba Tourism Awards.

"Free Your Spirit" and enjoy a weekend of music, art, nature, and community. Two days of music, two nights of camping.

Saturday's festivities will take place at Cottonwood Acres on Provincial Road 331 (main ticketed event), while Sunday will see concerts at Portage la Prairie's Island Park (a FREE community outreach event, "Folk in the Park").

Share in the warmth of an authentic grassroots festival, featuring some of the very best Manitoba musicians playing over an entire weekend. This year, talent from across the country will be performing at Whoop & Hollar!

Experience the true heart and spirit of the prairies while walking the winding nature trails, enjoying the wild pollinator garden, and discovering the magical assortment of trees in a cozy, pastoral setting.

Dance the night away, bring an instrument and join a jam session, or hang out in the quaint red barn between mainstage shows. Fun for all ages!

Check out the interactive workshops and family-friendly programming, plus "Artisan Alley" featuring a variety of local artwork and handmade gems.

Food vendors will cater to a variety of tastes (picnics are welcome).

Free tent camping Friday and Saturday night on main festival site, with festival pass (see below). Tent campground opens 6:00 pm on Friday. Paid RV Camping at Portage Ex Campground near Island Park.
