Neepawa

Neepawa, the world Lily Capital and home to Canada’s National Lily Festival welcomes you with open arms. Each year a dedicated team of volunteers celebrates these designations by hosting the Neepawa & Area Lily Festival the third full week in July. Known to its aboriginal dwellers as a good hunting and gathering area, Neepawa in fact means Land of Plenty in the Cree language. Early fur traders and settlers knew Neepawa as an area of stable climate, good soils and abundant harvests. The area became known as “The Beautiful Plains” as the settlers, upon gaining the heights of the escarpment to the east, viewed the open land and they remarked “What beautiful plains!” Located on the Trans Canada Yellowhead Highway and the Parks Route, Neepawa offers easy access to Edmonton in the west, Winnipeg in the east, northern Manitoba and the U.S. border.
