Ste. Anne-des-Chênes

Aprox Population: 1 500

Surrounded by rich farmland to the west, the boreal forest to the east and with the Seine River running through the middle of town, Ste. Anne-des-Chênes is located along the historic Dawson Trail, about 40 kilometres east of Winnipeg.

Ste. Anne-des-Chênes was the first parish established in Manitoba in 1856. It might be surprising to know that Ste. Anne supplied the lumber for the construction of the St. Boniface Cathedral.

In the winter, come to the Ste. Anne Winter Carnival on the last weekend in January. It features fun for the whole family, including a social night, a dance, curling, hockey, children’s crafts, and a snow sculpture contest.

In the summer, treat yourself to a visit to the Ste. Anne Farmers’ Market with fresh produce, preserves, baked goods and other local wares. 

The village is also proud to present Dawson Trail Days over the September long weekend. The three fun-filled days feature fireworks, a parade, baseball, music and dancing as well as a kids’ zone. Come and celebrate the history and heritage of the famous Dawson Trail! Drop in to the Pointe-des-Chênes museum to learn more about the history of the area’s Métis and pioneer populations.
