Visit Our Mustseeums Before they Close for the Season

Pioneer Village Museum – Beausejour 

Established in 1967, the Pioneer Village Museum recreates a small pioneer village. It contains a log house, school, community hall, Canadian Pacific Railway Station, store, blacksmith shop and a Ukrainian Church with a bell tower. Most of the pioneers of this region were of Polish, Ukrainian, or German descent coming from the areas known as Galacia and Volhynia. These pioneers had to face many hardships in carving out the wilderness and learning to adapt to a new country and a new way of life. Many artifacts depicting the lifestyle of the early pioneers of the surrounding area are located in these buildings. Hours of operation for August are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends. 

Whitemouth Municipal Museum – Whitemouth 

The Whitemouth Municipal Museum includes machinery, an original trapper's shack, two log buildings, a Christ Anglican church 1905, an artifact building, train caboose 1929, antique tractors, a historic home 1910, a two-man rail car with a set of tracks, farm equipment, and small household items. A cairn honours Dr. Charlotte Ross, "The Iron Rose." Heritage Day is in September. Open in August from Friday to Tuesday; hours vary by day.

Philip’s Magical Paradise – Giroux 

A mysterious force insists that you must take the time to stop and tour Western Canada’s only Museum of Magic and Illusion, Phillip's Magical Paradise. Even before you enter, the magic is around you.  Look carefully, as the key to this magic castle may be found in the sidewalk.  Once inside, you will possibly be the closest in life to ‘Magic’s most inner kept secrets!’ On your way out, don’t forget a souvenir from the gift shop!  As you leave, you will be taking a wealth of magical knowledge.

Interesting Historical Places to Check Out

The Manitoba Glass Works Historic Site – Beausejour

The Manitoba Glass Works Historic Site is the site of the first glass container factory in Western Canada. It was built in 1906 by Joseph Keilback and his partners. Glass-blowers from Poland and the United States, aided by local labour, used silica sands to produce bottles for breweries and soft drink companies in Winnipeg, serving the prairie market. Semi-automatic machines were soon installed to increase production. Winnipeg businessmen took over and enlarged the plant between 1909 and 1911. The new company expanded its production to include jars and medicine and ink bottles. At its peak, it employed 350 workers.

This historic site is situated at the south end of Glass Lake on First Street. It is open to public viewing throughout the summer months. Archeologists have participated in public digs at various times. Ink bottles, glass pieces, and tools have been found.

Fort Dufferin - Emerson

From 1872 to 1874, Fort Dufferin was the headquarters and winter home to the British-Canadian contingent of the International Boundary Commission. In mid-1874, a contingent of the newly-formed North West Mounted Police (later the Royal Canadian Mounted Police), assembled here prior to its march into what is now Alberta.

One of the buildings that once sat at the site still exists. A monument at the entrance to this site, near Emerson in the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin, bears two plaques. One plaque, erected in 1997 by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada, describes the westward march of the North West Mounted Police. The other plaque commemorates two constables in the force, W. C. Brown and A. McIntosh, who died in 1874 at Fort Dufferin and are buried in unmarked graves near the site.

Mennonite Landing – RM of Ritchot

Mennonite Landing is the site of the first landing of Mennonite settlers in western Canada. On 1 August 1874, the “International,” a steam-powered riverboat, landed here with the first contingent of 65 families. Between 1874 and 1880, some 7000 Mennonites came to Manitoba from German-speaking colonies in South Russia (Ukraine). The majority arrived at this spot, making their way 6 miles east to the Jacob Shantz reception houses near Niverville. From this base, they established some 54 villages in the East Reserve, present-day Rural Municipality of Hanover. Visit this historic place on Hwy 200 opposite Fontaine Road about 3.5 km north of Hwy 305 in the Rural Municipality of Ritchot.

5 Reasons to Get Out to an Eastern Manitoba Farmer's Market This Summer!

Have you been out to your local Farmer’s Market this year? If not, here are 5 reasons why you should get out to one this weekend!

#1 Nothing Beats Farm Fresh!

Nothing against our local grocery stores, but their produce sections just can’t be beaten by the goodness of locally grown, farm fresh fruits and vegetables. In most cases, local farmers are out in the fields on the morning of the market, providing you with the best produce. Until you have bitten into a just off the vine cucumber, or fresh from the patch strawberry, you won’t know what you have been missing all these years.

#2 The Secret Ingredient is Love

Everyone can relate to the nostalgia and sinfully delicious tastes of freshly baked goods. Quite possibly the only thing that beats out that fresh from the vine cucumber is the right out of the oven taste of the freshly baked goods that can be found at a Farmer’s Market. Home cooked, all natural, and often organic foods of all kinds can be found as you walk around the various tables. You’ll find cookies, pies, brownies, bread, even honey and jams to delight your taste buds at any Farmer’s Market you go to.

#3 The Craftsmanship is Outstanding

If you have a hard time finding joy in the mass-produced rows of big box stores, it is definitely time to get out to a Farmer’s Market. From small trinkets, that are perfect for gifts to fantastic furniture that is built to last, you will be amazed by the uniqueness of every piece. Each, a labour of love with its own story to tell. Not only that, you will find an array of exciting products that you just can’t find anywhere else. Beautiful wind chimes made entirely of silver wear, or a recycled wine bottle flattened into cheese trays, discarded antiques given new life as lamps and bookcases, old-fashioned handcrafted wooden toys, and so much more.

#4 Attending Farmer’s Markets Helps Your Community

Farmer’s Markets are more than a place to purchase produce, baked goods and crafts. Digging deeper, Farmer’s Markets provide an outlet, and often, a testing ground for entrepreneurs to showcase their products. Everyone in a community benefits from a Farmer’s Market.

Vendors benefit because they use the market as a sole or first point of entry into a market. This is where they sell their goods with lower overhead and immediate feedback from their consumers. Consumers benefit by receiving access to fresh, locally produced food, products, and services. The one-on-one contact and communication with a producer brings a level of trust and knowledge that you can’t get in a department or grocery store. Finally, Farmer’s Markets help create a robust local economy by providing the venue for the original shop local campaign. Farmer’s Markets were around long before the big box entered the world.

#5 It’s One Big Social Gathering

In every small town, certain events can bring an entire community together. Farmer’s Markets are one prime example of this. Markets are a great place to gather, visiting with family and friends, enjoying the company of your neighbours, and getting to know locals that you just haven’t met yet. Farmer’s markets have a tendency to bring everyone out! Many of them even offer entertainment in the form of local musicians, actors, and artists signing and providing demonstrations of the art. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll find a market and a vendor who offers workshops and classes allowing you to try out a new skill during one of your visits.

It's Time to Join the Crowds at Eastman's Hottest Music Festivals

No matter the genre, our province is chalked full of some of the most exciting, heartfelt, toe-tapping, get out of your seats and dance music you will ever hear. From Juno winners whose names you may recognize to bands who you’ve never heard of before, Manitoba has been well known for producing some of Canada’s most famous music since the early 1960’s.

The Guess Who, Neil Young, Tom Cochrane, Harlequin, the Crash Test Dummies, Chantal Kreviazuk, The Weakerthans, Doc Walker and so many more made their start playing in small clubs and music festivals in our province.

Unless you are an avid independent music lover or frequent the local clubs and festivals, there is also a long list of amazingly talented artists whose name you just don’t know. William Prince, Sweet Alibi, Patrick Alexandre Leclerc, Dustin Harder & The Dusty Roads Band, Richard Inmann, and so many more. And the only way to connect with their music is to get to know them at some of the music festivals happening this summer!

This weekend, Eastern Manitoba is host to one of the provinces largest music festivals, The Winnipeg Folk Fest, kicking off a summer full of great festivals to check out, and incredible talent to get to know.

5 Reasons to Join the Crowd

#5 The Experience is Unforgettable. There is no better way to describe a music festival, other than to say, you just have to get out there and experience it for yourself. The music, the crowds, the good vibes — they are all infectious. From the moment you walk through the festival gates, to the very last performance, you’ll be laughing and dancing, singing along and having a great time.  

#4 The Community of People. Contrary to what you may think, the majority of people who attend music festivals are amazingly friendly and outgoing. I never thought it possible, but I have made countless friends from around the world by visiting the numerous music festivals in Eastern Manitoba. I’ve connected with artists, stagehands, volunteers, and even future business partners by sharing my love of music.

#3 Lasting Memories are Created. You never really know what’s going to happen at a live performance and being part of the crowd as new music legends make their debut performance or having a chance meeting with those considered music icons is remarkable.

#2 The Music is Outstanding. The most spectacular thing about independent artists is that they are absolutely outstanding live! I even go as far as saying that seeing these artists on the stage is much better than listening to their recorded albums and videos. There’s nothing quite like feeling the music as the thumping of the drums beats in your chest, the bass guitar floods through your entire body, and the vocals carry your thoughts away in stories.

#1 You are Never too Old to Be Apart of the Crowd. Having been introduced to the music festival scene well into my thirties, I can attest to this fact. Shed the thought that music festivals are only for the younger generations because they aren’t. I have been surrounded by people from Generation Z to Baby Boomers at all the festivals I have attended.

Eastern Artists to Watch for

Not only do our rich prairie soils provide some of the best outdoor music festival locations, they have helped grow and nurture some amazing artists. 

Cohen Sieg

A 17-year-old singer/songwriter and musician from Sieg's Corner, Manitoba, Cohen Sieg has been writing and performing for the past seven years at festivals and open mics all across Canada. His musical style is pop/folk but if you've been lucky enough to catch him live, you'll know that he plays a variety of country, rock, and blues as well. This multitalented musician plays the guitar, piano, drums, mandolin, ukelele, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, harmonica, banjo accordion and an assortment of percussion instruments.

What we love about Cohen is how his depth and passion for music plays out in every song, from his first released solo recording "Goodbye" to his covers of Stitches, She's Like the Wind and Shape of You, he brings the music alive. Rumored to be releasing his first album soon, Cohen is a definite must see. You'll have to get yourself down to one of our local music festivals (hint: he'll be at Fire and Water this August Long) to see this music legend in the making. 

Wreckin' So

This Rock/Metal/Blue/Country band has been breaking a new trail in the music industry like never seen before. They are taking the music scene by storm and inviting everyone to come along with them. Wreckin' So produces a sound that is beyond unique - it's downright infectious. The raw, raunchy voice of lead singer Brent Alaire, coupled Ronnie Ladobruk's insane shredding, the exploding talents of Clint Chaboyer on drums and the defining bassline provided by Claude Deveau, is guaranteed to get you up and out of your seat. You'll love their originals such as "The Merchant, The Sailor and the Bride to be" and "Still Smokin" and their metal infused renditions of your favourites such as "Ain't No Sunshine" by Bill Withers and  "Midnight Rider" by The Allman Brothers will blow your minds.

Not only do these guys put on the best live show, they also play some pretty unique homemade instruments, the Diddley Bo carved out of a barn door and an electric guitar made with a hubcap from the legendary 1964 Ford Meteor. Wreckin' So is one band you just can't miss this summer (they'll be playing at the Bankside Festival August 11th, or you can catch them in Pinawa during Lundmania on July 21st). 

Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen

Meeting via a chance YouTube sighting and fueled by a once-in-a-lifetime musical chemistry and friendship, Canadian-American Roots-Folk duo Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen are instantly memorable and magnetically appealing. Beyond the synchronicity of their meeting, Dan and Laurel’s backgrounds and musical palates are a surprising, uncanny, and perfect match. Fans have noted a sense that one is witnessing an output of color, creativity, and artistry far more textured and rich than merely the sum of its parts. Though each artist had a drastically different style of musical training and were the result of different musical backgrounds, their equal dedication, experience, and the ways in which each inspires the other to grow and evolve musically, make Dan and Laurel a dynamic and unstoppable team.

Dan Frechette, Canadian entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, gifted impressionist, and prolific singer-songwriter, hailing from Pinawa. He is a musical force that can only be matched by the lovely vocals, and rich, expressive violin tones produced by the charismatic Laurel Thomsen. With just one listen, we know you will fall in love with, "The Mists of Down Below", "Glory in My Soul", "Puddles in the Rain", and of course the duo themselves. They don't get through Manitoba all too often, so don't miss your chance to see them live at The Sundial Music Festival, happing in Pinawa on July 20.


Music plays a vibrant part in our culture. It is an expressive language that often tells a story, expresses emotion, and shares ideas. It is something that we can all relate to, something that we often include in our everyday lives. No matter our mood, there is always a song that tells our story. This summer, we invite you to join us in Eastern Manitoba to discover a whole new world and music.
