"WHOOP AT THE HOOP"
#whoop2018 #whoopatthehoop @whoopandhollar
Community. Diversity. Sustainability. - What we're about.
Less than an hour from Winnipeg and minutes from Portage la Prairie, a magical experience awaits. The Whoop & Hollar Folk Festival will be celebrating its sixth year on August 25, 2018.
"Whoop and holler" as you enjoy a diverse lineup of performers from Portage la Prairie, across Manitoba, and beyond! Fun for all ages in a charming, intimate setting...surrounded by nature.
Listen to the music, dance, sing, walk the Cottonwood Trail, or enjoy the prairie pollinator garden. You can also create visual art, stroll through the handmade village, join an open mic in the Red Barn, participate in the midnight jam sessions around the bonfire, or camp out for two nights beneath the stars...the experience is yours to discover.
The up-and-coming festival has aimed to revive the spirit of the music and dance scene that existed in the historic Hoop & Holler District (hence the name), nearly a century ago.
Here's your chance to get out of the city on a lovely Saturday afternoon and let your hair down for an evening, or perhaps an entire weekend if you come on Friday night! Experience something new this summer at Whoop & Hollar - it's unforgettable!
Happy Festival, Folkies! Let's "Whoop It Up" together this summer!!
