After three stellar years at our second home at The Forks in Winnipeg, Interstellar Rodeo announces that its time in Winnipeg has come to an end. The original edition of Interstellar Rodeo in Edmonton will continue as always, and in fact, the booking process for that festival is already well underway for July 20-22, 2018.


We are very proud of our fantastic years in Winnipeg, and grateful to our partners, our sponsors, our volunteers, and our loyal patrons for creating so many great memories and good times.  Winnipeg is a wonderful city and a hub for music and culture.

So what’s cooking for Interstellar Rodeo in the future?  “We’re going to hyper-focus on our Edmonton festival in 2018, and are currently researching and exploring other festival opportunities for 2019,” answers de Cartier.  “We have learned a lot in the nine festivals we have produced to date, and we have no intentions of stopping anytime soon.”

Meanwhile, we’d love to see Winnipeggers at Hawrelak Park this July, just as so many Edmontonians made the trek to Winnipeg for the past three years. Let Edmontonians return the favour of being the incredible hosts you were to them!
