The annual Métis festival is here again. This is the “most celebratory day of the calendar year for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit across Canada:”

10th Annual Métis Festival

The McMurray Métis will hold its 10th annual Métis Festival on Friday June 21, the summer solstice, coinciding with National Indigenous Peoples Day.

In previous years, Métis Festival was held earlier in the Spring, however the Board of Directors of the McMurray Métis decided to move its Métis Festival to National Indigenous Peoples Day.

All residents of Fort McMurray, Indigenous or non, are welcome to attend our event from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on June 21, 2019, on our Métis grounds at 441 Sakitawaw Trail. -via mcmurraymetis.org

The event is usually held in the spring each year. But this year’s event, the 10th in the series, was shifted to summer this year by the Board of Directors of McMurray Métis to coincide with the National Indigenous People Day. The full-day event takes place at the Métis Grounds at 441 Sakitawaw Trail. All indigenous and non-indigenous residents of McMurray are invited to attend.
