This year, Canada Day at The Forks transformed into what organizers called a reimagined version of the national celebration.

In the wake of thousands of potential unmarked graves being discovered last year on residential school grounds, and after consultations with Winnipeg’s Indigenous community, The Forks replaced its typical Canada Day festivities with a new slate of culturally influenced events.

Events at The Forks included a variety of Indigenous ceremonies, performances by more than 150 musicians, 10 culturally influenced cultural pop-up shows and the usual smattering of food trucks and treats.
