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.

I had booked Fort Gibraltar for my daughter's brunch bridal shower in November 2014. We had outstanding service and fabulous food - our guests were full of compliments. The surroundings are spectacular. Now just booked Fort Gibraltar for a business breakfast meeting event solely due to the wonderful experience we had last November. Definitely a place to keep in mind... More

Visited this site at an event. Beautiful location in the summertime. (not sure about other seasons) was thrown back into history with the landscape and architecture of this venue. Beautiful!

We recently booked Fort Gibraltar for our work holiday dinner for 120 people and it was fantastic. the room did not need any decorations, as it was gorgeous on its own, and it felt like we were miles out of the city. So cozy. We had the buffet which was great and full of variety for everyone. The staff were... More

I've been working as the blacksmith here for over 25 years during the Festival and I can tell you that you won't find a better time in Feb! Get there early to avoid the long lines, and get ready to have fun! Don't worry about being cold (though you should dress for it) all the outdoor tents are heated and... More

Regardless of whether you're a Manitoban or not, it is worth your while to go to any function at this Fort. This was a private function and this is where Festival de Voyageur is held.

This was a fun setting for a wedding reception. The supper was proceeded by a bar and ax throwing. The staff did a great job in setting up for approximately 150 attendees but the food serving needs improvement. The food was good but served family style to each table. They needed more staff as the serving plates were not delivered... More

My now husband and I were married at Fort Gibraltar on September 20, 2015. Working with Connie and Angie who coordinate and organize everything from decorations, to budget, to food, was a dream. They were always easy to reach if I had question (I had many), our day went off without a hitch! And we were right on budget. No... More
