Brandon Travel Guide
Welcome to Brandon!
After being chosen as an important link along the route of the Canadian Pacific Railway, Brandon became a city in 1882. Over 100 years later, the —Wheat City— has much to offer. Learn about the importance of the area's agriculture industry at Manitoba AgDays, join the locals cheering on the WHL—s Brandon Wheat Kings, check out the attractions at both the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair and the Manitoba Summer Fair, and enjoy a day of music at the Brandon Folk Music and Art Festival. All of these activities and more can be found at the Keystone Centre Arena. Guests can also listen to young musicians perform at the Brandon Jazz Festival held on the Brandon University campus, or educate themselves on contemporary art by checking out the exhibits at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba. This farming community, which is the second largest city in Manitoba, has a rich heritage that visitors are welcome to explore.
Located at the Brandon University, this natural history museum is a showcase of Canadian birds, mammals, geology and plants.
