Trees Winnipeg’s Arbor Day
We're after a little break due to Covid-19 we're back and better than ever!
Come join us for Arbor day on Saturday - June 4th, 2022 at Kildonan Park by Rainbow Stage!
Arbor Day is Tree Winnipeg’s annual one-day event that takes Winnipeg’s reputation for its beloved urban canopy to new heights in the city’s largest public event dedicated to trees. This year we are combining our famous Arbor Day festival with our Releaf program, so be sure to check out our fabulous attractions, and attend a tree planting workshop, before picking up your trees.

Trees Winnipeg is thankful for the support every year of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Prairie Chapter. Every year, you can follow our Arbor Day activities at #arbordaywpg
Activities for Everyone at Arbor Day
Taking place on Saturday June 4th, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm people of all ages can take tree rides, such as climbing, and rising above the tree canopy in a bucket. Many of the region’s best tree experts, including ISA-Certified Arborists, are on-hand to give free tree advice and offer career information. On-the-ground activities include children’s crafts, wood-carving demonstrations, tree planting, and honouring the winner of the Arbor Day poster contest. In 2022, that person is the ever-talented Layla Antonation!
In the spirit of Arbor Days celebrated around the world every spring, Trees Winnipeg encourages all Winnipeggers to plant a tree over our Arbor Day weekend. We recommend all newly planted trees be resilient species, such as maple, bur oak, pin cherry, birch, and apple, which we sell as part of our popular ReLeaf Program.
Climb a Tree
Climb a tree with a pro! ISA-Certified Arborists will help you safely climb one of the large trees at the city park where Arbor Day is hosted.
Get a bird’s eye view of the city from waaaaay up on a bucket truck! Be an Arborist for the day!
Wish you had a keepsake to remind you of your Arbor Day experience? You can make a tree cookie necklace in our craft tent, or other fun crafts and take home a white spruce sapling to plant in your yard.
We have plenty of activities that have your 2 feet planted firmly in the ground, too. Follow the buzzing of chainsaws to watch expert woodcarvers create new pieces of art.
Check out one of the many non-profit booths we’ll have set up to learn about the different organizations and initiatives taking place in Winnipeg. We all have one thing in common: we heart trees!
Be a part of the day by volunteering! It's a great way to learn more about what we do, take part in a fun day and help your community!
