Carberry Festival Deemed A Success, Will Be Annual Event

CARBERRY HERITAGE FEST PICS 061

Reid Dickie

Great news for heritage buffs! The Carberry Heritage Festival Committee had its final meeting this week and decided there will be a second annual festival next year!

Cathy Drayson, one of the committee members, said the merchants and the townspeople were very happy with the turnout and results of the festival. It brought many new faces to town, helped support local businesses and gave Manitoba’s heritage gem a higher profile.

“I think it went very well and we’re hearing good reports from both locals and those from away,” says Cathy. “We definitely have a few kinks to fix and have come up with some ideas already.”

Personally I’m thrilled the event will continue. Carberry has only begun to exploit its rich and varied history. I’m humbled and grateful to play a small part in publicizing its heritage.
