Festival du Voyageur has received accolades from the American Bus Association (ABA) for being one of the top 100 events in North America.

The ABA says the annual Winnipeg winter event offers excellent entertainment value to both tour groups and individual travellers from around the world. The honour was published as a supplement to Destinations magazine.

“It is an honour for Festival du Voyageur to be named one of North America’s top events, and demonstrates that Western Canada’s largest winter festival is a great experience for groups,” said Ginette Lavack Walters, executive director of Festival du Voyageur.

While making their final decisions for the list, ABA judges considered the event’s broad appeal, its accessibility to motorcoaches and skill at handling large groups, and a variety of other relevant criteria.

The 2014 Festival du Voyageur is February 14-23.
