Manitoba Open Farm Day is this Sunday, September 21st, and over 40 farms will open their doors (or gates!) to the public. Learn all about the world of farming by meeting local farmers, exploring farm operations, watching demonstrations, discovering more about farm products and farm life, and enjoying recreational activities.
The farms participating in this year’s event produce everything from dairy, poultry, meat, veggies, grain, fruit and more. Many of them will offer their products for sale or sample as well.
Additional venues, such as farmer’s markets and museums, will also participate. Visit the Host Farms page to find out all the participating organizations.
Check out videos from last year’s Open Farm Day on YouTube – here’s one from Cornell Dairy Farm – makers of the delectable Cornell Creme artisan ice cream that is just flying off the shelves these days (their latest flavour is Pumpkin Patch – sounds amazing!).
This weekend marks a major milestone for Winnipeg – the Canadian Museum for Human Rights will open its doors to the public, at last!

This architectural icon is Canada’s first national museum outside of the capital region and the first national museum to be built in nearly half a century.
There is lots going on to celebrate the museum’s opening weekend; visit the museum website to learn all about the opening ceremonies, concert, tours, and RightsFest, the accompanying festival.
Fall is on the way but there’s still one great summer activity you can partake in this weekend! The Seine River Minor Ball annual Slo Pitch tournament takes place September 12-14 at Optimist Park on Arnould Road in Ile des Chenes, just a few minutes away from Arrowhead.
Enjoy a cold one and catch a few games – you might even see your friendly Arrowhead RV Park owners hit a home run (our family team will be participating in the recreational division).
