The Forks National Historic Site is a busy site nestled in the centre of downtown Winnipeg at the meeting place of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers and is known for being a fantastic place to visit all year round! Come sunshine or snow, there’s always something to enjoy—from tapping your toes at a free concert, taking a historic tour or skating the frozen river trails.
