Owner description: Located minutes from downtown Winnipeg, Fort Gibraltar is an ideal venue for hosting a variety of events: weddings, corporate meetings, private functions, group tours and more! Three rooms are available year-round, offering modern facilities in an historical setting. In the summer, Fort Gibraltar is also a living history museum offering interactive and educational guided tours about the fur trade era. Our costumed interpreters relive the daily life of the inhabitants of the site in 1815 as you visit significant buildings in the fort such as the blacksmith shop, the winterer's cabin and the trading post. In February, the historical venue is at the heart of the largest winter festival in Western Canada, the Festival du Voyageur.

Great place to come with the family and learn about the life of the voyageur. They go out of their way to provide places to keep warm, even through the bitter cold.

Excellent music and food! It was a brutally cold Manitoba winter day but the entertainment made up for it.

We had our wedding here, and it was fantastic. Great food, excellent service, and you can't beat the location! We had a simply ceremony with a cocktail reception afterwards, and it was a fantastic experience. We had a bonfire outside, music inside... It's a truly unique location for an event. For a straight up visit, it's worth spending an hour... More

We had our work Christmas Dinner at Fort Gibraltar last December and it was absolutely amazing. The staff was great and the atmosphere in the Great hall was wonderful. We had the Manitoba Buffet and the food was excellent and there was lots of it. Everybody loved it and wants to have the event there again next year. Thanks again... More

Fort Gibraltar is a very unique venue: a replica of the Northwest Company's fort during the fur trade era in Manitoba, juxtaposed with the modern buildings of downtown Winnipeg. It was the perfect venue for our winter wedding. When the temperatures dropped to -30C, typical of January in Winnipeg, we were warm and cozy celebrating in the Maison du Bourgeois... More

I have attended both a wedding and a christmas party at this venue and both were wonderful. The atmosphere is outstanding as well as the staff. Catered dinners were excellent and the food was comforting and delicious. I can't wait for another opportunity to visit.

I attended a Christmas party at Fort Gibraltar, I found the location and venue charming and warm and the food, absolutely divine! The menu was tantalizing and the staff super accomodating to my multitude of allergies. I had contacted the staff ahead of time, specifically, Angie Coe, and they arranged to have food kept aside from the buffet in order... More

We recently attended a wedding at Fort Gibraltar. Not being from Winnipeg, we did not know what to expect. It was beautiful. Everything from the simplicity of the decorations to the building itself was lovely. The food served was excellent. Not typically dry wedding fare. We had a choice of chicken or buffalo. I had the chicken and my husband... More
