The Heritage Day Fair is making its return to Dauphin Market Place Mall, Feb. 17 and 18.
Organizing committee member, Don White said it nice to be back after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
And with 13 organizations participating to celebrate the history of the Parkland, there will be plenty to see, White added.
For example, those attending the free event can expect to see Manitoba’s winning entry into the 1967 Centennial Voyageur Canoe Pageant, the Pierre Radisson, courtesy of Fort Dauphin Museum. All aspects of the area’s history will be highlighted, White added, noting the Negrych Homestead and the history of the Dauphin Fire Department are popular topics among fairgoers.
The displays will be set up in the former Ardene’s location, which has allowed organizers to run the fair over two days.
“It’s two days so we can lock the door and everything’s secure,” White said, adding the move to two days was a positive one as it was a lot of work for the exhibitors to pack up their displays and head to the mall for a one-day event.
