The Manitoba Summer Fair returns to Brandon June 5 – 9 at the Keystone Centre with more music, more entertainment and more community partnerships.

The fair will host its fifth annual Canadian Citizenship ceremony on Wednesday, June 6 to kick off the week along with Brandon’s largest midway show presented by North American Midway Entertainment and an evening with random information masters, Trivia with Kate and Aaron.
