This Winterlude, bring your family in out of the cold.


The Avatar Puppet Market – February 2 and 3

From 10:00 to 17:00, make fun and easy puppets—on a budget. We supply puppet parts and play money, the kids make the puppets.


Viola Desmond and the Vertical $10 Behind-the-scenes Presentation – February 8

At 14:00, join Boyd Laanstra—a design lead on the new vertical $10—for a fascinating hour-long presentation: a behind-the-scenes look at the visual and thematic development of the new $10 bank note featuring Viola Desmond.

Following the presentation from 15:00 to 18:00, bring your $10 bank notes and exchange them for crisp, new, uncirculated vertical $10 bank notes.


Build-a-Brick of Tea Workshop – February 9 and 10

Trading Fur – February 16, 17 and 18

From 10:00 to 17:00, warm up with cedar tea while trapper and Métis educator Archie Martin presents his collection of trapping artifacts and furs. Handle some of the genuine articles yourself.
