Manitoba Day is May 12th
Manitoba Day History
The Manitoba Act, which created the Province of Manitoba, was given Royal Assent on May 12, 1870. This paved the way for the proclamation on July 15, 1870. On May 12, 1966 Manitoba’s official flag was dedicated and unfurled for the first time. In 1986, May 12 was designated as Manitoba Day in perpetuity, in recognition of the importance of this day in the history of the Province.
The Mennonite Heritage Village is pleased to host a celebration of Manitoba’s 150th birthday on Tuesday, May 12. We won’t be handing out cake, but we will be commemorating this day with music , tributes and a flag raising virtual celebration. Join us online at 11:00am for this time of thankfulness and appreciation!
