The Manitoba Summer Fair is scheduled for June 5–9 this year.

Local acts will get a boost by appearing at the Manitoba Summer Fair, thanks in part to a recent contribution from the federal government.

Some $17,000 has been earmarked for the Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba to help put on the five-day fair, from June 5-9 at the Keystone Centre.

"We’re really grateful for this support as it will enable us to incorporate performances by talented local artists into the 100th anniversary celebration of the Dome Building," said Karen Oliver of the Provincial Ex, which puts on the fair.

The fair will include music and dance performances by local artists, history talks, and demonstrations by local painters and woodworkers as well as the midway and livestock shows.

The money was announced today by Brandon-Souris Conservative MP Merv Tweed.

"Our government recognizes the importance of supporting community events," Tweed said. "For more than 130 years, the Manitoba Summer Fair has brought residents together and has helped build a stronger community."
