Cancellation of Fair

The Red River Heritage Committee has decided that at this time it is prudent to cancel our fair scheduled for May 6, 2020. We understand that this will be a disappointment for your students but these are unusual times.

The Young Citizens program, where students may create videos on a volunteer basis, will still be operating, so please encourage your students to participate!

Looking forward to a successful fair in 2021!


Red River Heritage Fair 2020

Themes for Manitoba 150 Anniversary
May 6, 2020

We are asking teachers and students to take note of the suggested themes and create their projects around them, using Historical thinking concepts.  Topics of your choice are also welcome, reflecting the 150th theme using the Historic Thinking Concepts

For Manitoba 150, project topics are to reflect the historic aspect of Manitoba, not the modern and current 21st century world

The Historical Thinking Project works with six distinct concepts. To think historically, students need to be able to:     

  • Establish historical significance  
  • Use primary source evidence
  • Identify continuity and change
  • Analyze cause and consequence
  • Take historical perspectives, and
  • Understand the ethical dimension of historical interpretations

For more resources on Manitoba 150

Please keep your student topics Canadian history based. Due to the anniversary themes, we may exclude 21st century topics from attending the heritage fair this year.  Please contact the RRHF committee if you are unsure of students’ topic selection.

Hey, how can I bring more of my students to the Red River Heritage Fair?

The Art Category at the Red River Heritage Fair and Symposium needs your entries!

Let your creative students shine!!

To celebrate our 15th anniversary and the adoption of our new and improved name, we are offering 3    Art category slots to any school!  These are over and above the number of slots you qualify for because of your school’s participation numbers.  Or, you may  be a school that only wishes to enter the Art category!!

Students are required to prepare an artist’s statement as well as some brief information about their art piece and how it connects to Canada.  Any process work such as preliminary sketches etc. would also help show judges the creative process.

Registration is the same as for our traditional research projects: students will participate in workshops, have two judgings  and receive participation certificates and medals.
