The Manitoba Sunflower Festival Returns This Weekend

The best festival of them all, the sunflower festival, is finally back in Winnipeg. Many Manitobans love and appreciate the sunflower festival simply due to its beauty. This exciting and very awaited festival is going to be happening this weekend.

The festival is unlike any other; it celebrates the Sunflower Capital of Canada with the most exciting and well-organized events and activities. The celebration will be happening for three days straight, starting this weekend, so many Manitobans will have the opportunity to attend.

“This is so exciting, and I feel like my heart is going to burst!! I love this festival; it’s my utmost favourite. I enjoy attending it so much that I don’t mind the amount of time it takes me to get there.” Mariam Hythem, a usual attendee of the sunflower festival, was asked about her opinion on the festival’s return.

The festival will include many activities that everyone loves—starting, of course, with a delicious big BBQ lunch. There will be many choices, such as hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, and the best of them all, sunflower seed ice cream. That’s not all, and there will also be many food trucks to order from and enjoy the best views of Centennial Park.

Moreover, a food truck owner said, “I go there to sell food and enjoy all the exciting events! It’s a festival that really has a very special place in my heart; seeing everyone enjoying their hearts out is really heart-filling.”

On the second day of the festival, the day begins with a pancake breakfast. Moreover, the best thing about the sunflower festival is the crowing of the Pageant Queen. This part of the event is very magnificent and unique. The day will end with the most fabulous fireworks display that will take place behind the Millennium Exhibition Centre.

The sunflower festival is very close, and everyone is very excited to attend this festival after the pandemic that has affected its activities for two years. All Manitobans are thrilled to have it back and to attend all of the fantastic events that will take place.
