Whoop & Hollar Folk Festival is an award-winning, non-profit organization and annual festival in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba that creates and celebrates community through music, art, and nature.
By means of its year-round programming, Whoop & Hollar is focused on promoting, supporting, and expanding the unique identity of its local arts and culture scene. The grassroots organization is 100% volunteer-driven.
The festival was recently named the Rural Municipality of Portage la Prairie’s signature event for 2019, and aims to revive the spirit of the music and dance scene that existed in the historic Hoop & Holler District (hence the name), nearly a century ago.
