Directions to Site

Portage Exhibition Grounds, Island Park

Depending on the provincial COVID-19 public health orders later this summer, the 2021 Festival will either be held in a drive-in/livestreamed hybrid format or an entirely virtual format. One way or the other, the festival will stream live from the Portage Exhibition Grounds, just like last year.


Enter the City of Portage la Prairie on Highway 1A or Highway 240 and follow signs for "Island Park: Manitoba Star Attraction" toward Crescent Lake. Proceed to causeway bridge at the corner of Royal Road South @ Crescent Road. Take the causeway road across to Island Park and turn right, drive past Stride Place, and follow signs, arrows, and directions from volunteers to get to the festival site. Use the map above for easy directions.
