Tourism in the Village of St. Pierre-Jolys is driven by their community’s prevelent French-Canadian cultural heritage. The Village also has roots within the Métis community in Manitoba. Home to the annual Frog Follies, St. Pierre-Jolys has a long history of attracting visitors to the village. With a growing community, the Village is well positioned for investment in a thriving cultural environment.

Reasons To Invest



The French-Canadian and Métis heritage of the Village should be celebrated. St. Pierre-Jolys could serve as a sattilite venue for Festival du Voyageur or Folklorama held annually in Winnipeg or additional cultural events. Festivals and events like these present spin-off opportunities for vendors and support facilities and services. 


In addition to hosting cultural events, St. Pierre-Jolys is strategically located to host larger recreational or sporting events. With a number of rural communities in the surrounding area, investment in recreational facilities can turn the Village into a recreational hub for surrounding communities and an ideal location for regional sporting tournaments.

St. Pierre-Jolys Manitoba Festivals



Located just under 60 km (40-minute drive) north of the Tolstoi Port of Entry, St. Pierre-Jolys’ location on Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 59 makes it the perfect stop en route to Winnipeg, located a short 25-minute drive from the Village, or other destinations. Available commercial land within the Village is highly suitable for investment in accommodations, restaurants, or other travel-related services.

Recent investment in municipal campsites in Parc Carillon demonstrates that there is a growing demand for outdoor recreation facilities. Given the proximity to Winnipeg and other larger centres, the Village is an ideal spot for people looking to escape the city. As a growing community, there is also potential for investment in recreational trails for cycling, cross-country skiing, hiking, and walking trails. The Village is also located along the Crow Wing Trail, which connects Winnipeg to the Canada-United States border at the town of Emerson.
