Get a Taste of Pembina Valley Hospitality!

The Pembina Valley Honey Garlic & Maple Syrup Festival happens annually the second Saturday in September. This year our festival is on September 7th, 2024. There is something for the entire family to enjoy; from a kid's tent, farmer's market tent, craft sale and display booths, to a huge show n' shine complete with a live band. Our indoor stage features a lot of local faces with a variety of music. Stay for our famous gourmet buffet supper with all the trimmings. Finish off the day with an evening concert at the Manitou Opera House.

Joe Kozak was the founder of the festival in 2001.

The mandate set out was to give venue for local vendors to market their merchandise and the local organizations an opportunity to raise funds for their cause, while drawing tourism to our area.

The entire community works together to host the Honey Garlic & Maple Syrup Festival!
