Events & Activities

You’re going to have a hard time picking a favourite thing to do at the Fat Calf Festival! Whether you’re swimming at the Oasis pool, sipping fruit drinks at the Tiki Bar, hurdling down zip lines, or going out on a wagon ride, you are going to have a lot of fun.

Download the full Fat Calf schedule/prayer calendar here. Parents, families, and congregations are invited to use this schedule as a prayer calendar throughout the week for all youth, volunteers, and staff. Thanks so much for your support!

Here’s what we have planned so far…

Night Market –Entering the Story of the Prodigal:

Travel to another time where the sights, sounds, smells and colours provide an ancient marketplace. This is where people gathered, merchants sold their wares, and entertainers, musicians & storytellers amazed. There’ll be fire-breathers, jugglers, magicians, games and a few other surprises (we don’t want to give everything away)! The Night Market will kick-off the ‘Fest.

Fat Calf Feast and Festival:

Put on your chaps, cowboy hat and dancing shoes for a a rootin’ tootin’ cowboy skootin’ time! We’ll be starting off the evening with a mouth-watering pig roast and all the fixings, and music from Metis fiddle player Melissa St. Goddard. Following this, there will be a square dance, rodeo (with live animals) and games. Yeehaw!!

Water Slide Park

What could be more fun than a private party at one of Winnipeg’s largest water slide parks? Not much! For the thrill seekers, Fun Mountain has 7 death-defying slides and for those willing to forgo their bragging rights in favour of a couple of tamer options, there are splash pools, a giant hot tub, and (of course) the kiddie slides!

Be sure to check back – we’ll be posting more events.
