Throughout the year, the communities along the Parks Route play host to numerous activities, events and festivals. From Ponderosa Days in Cartwright and Hoof’n’Holler Days in Ste. Rose du Lac, to Countryfest and Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival in Dauphin and agricultural fairs across the region, there’s something for every taste and interest. Join us for some down-home cooking at one of the many fall suppers, or take in the excitement of a local agricultural fair. For the mechanically-inclined, Roblin’s “Junkyard Wars” and Dauphin’s “Cruisin’ Dauphin” are two must-see events.
