Manitoba is home to so many wonderful independent artists and Eastern Manitoba has some wonderfully unique music venues to bring artists from all genres a little closer to home. From cozy guest houses, and ski lodges to community centre stages and heritage churches, Eastern Manitoba Music Venues focus on bringing us some of the best Manitoba and Canadian music in intimate settings that allow you to get up close and personal with the artists and the music!
Lac du Bonnet
The Listening Room is a new up and coming music venue that started earlier this year. They put on a show every 3 weeks featuring the best local, Manitoban and Canadian artists from all genres so all music lovers can enjoy! The Listening Room prides itself on setting an intimate atmosphere in their 113-year old church, that was deconsecrated in December of 2018, and now brings the community of Lac du Bonnet together by the gentle strums of guitars, beats of drums and wonderous vocals.
What does EMCA stand for? It is the Eastern Manitoba Concert Association and they do one heck of a job throwing concerts! Running for 46 years, they work to bring great Manitoban, Canadian and International artists to Pinawa for all of Eastern Manitoba to enjoy. They have also provided educational opportunities for students to learn about music, theatre and growing their communities with volunteer work. Make sure to check out their line up as they always have someone coming to town.
Get out on the dance floor at South Beach Casino & Resort! Every Friday and Saturday they have live entertainment from every genre of music, fantastic food, and a great experience.
Moon Gate Guest House was born when owners Jenny and Michel decided to combine their talent and passion to grow their community by not only providing a live music venue and guest house but by also partnering up with artists, instructors and many others to provide workshops, classes and events. Snuggle up on one of the couches and feel your worries melt away as talented musicians whisk you in the gentle lull of notes and harmony.
An old-school little ski resort, hidden in the woods of the Whiteshell Provincial Park on the shores of Falcon Lake, Manitoba.

Whether you enjoy hitting the slopes or not, Falcon Lake Ski Resort brings in some great artists every week so you can sit back and enjoy the music. Falcon Lake Ski Resort is also home to the Snowdance Festival of Winter & Music.
