For two weekends, Nov 19-21 and Nov 26-28, the Manitoba Métis Federation and Stanley Electric & Mechanical Ltd. sponsors Holiday Alley’s big tent filled with local musicians and merry makers – for all ages. Hosted in Selkirk Park get ready to tap your toes in your boots and clap your mittens for musicians you’ve missed and some you’re just getting to know and love.
Check Holiday Alley’s Facebook and Instagram for the up-to-date list of performers in the Community Canopy!

The Community Canopy is located in the Agriculture Building in Selkirk Park. 

  • Directions – Drive into the park, as usual, and follow the Holiday Alley arrow signs! The Ag Building has a large Holiday Alley sign in the back.
  • Health Protocols
    • Masks must be worn while standing and entering the building and can be removed after being seated with your group to eat and drink!⠀
    • Continue to social distance! It’s great to greet everyone you know, but try to do it from afar! ⠀
    • All eligible guests, artists, facilitators, and volunteers must provide proof of vaccination and ID!
⠀
  • Parking – The ample parking lot is in front of the building as well as additional parking in the rear.
  • Accessibility – The Ag Building is wheelchair, walker, and stroller accessible in both the front and rear doorway. There are two accessible parking spots in the rear and an accessible porta potty available.
  • Seating – There are 18 picnic tables and multiple sturdy chairs (with no arms) for seating available. Attending groups are asked to sit together.
  • Food & Drinks – You can bring your own coffee, tea, take-out meals, and snacks! 
We will have the Lemon Train onsite offering goodies throughout the weekend. And we highly encourage picking up from one of our local favorites!
