Victoria Beach

From all of us at LWF, thank you to everyone who took part in our 2021 summer event season, whether in person or online! While continuing to navigate ongoing public health challenges, we were excited for the opportunity to once again connect with citizens who share our love and concern for Lake Winnipeg.

New for 2021, our VB event will start outside at the Village Green Stage.

Scott McDonald leads the cyclists riding on the highway during Bike to the Beach 2020

Perfect weather conditions, the camaraderie of fellow cyclists and a record-breaking amount of money raised in support of a healthy Lake Winnipeg: in all aspects, the inaugural Bike to the Beach ride was a huge success.

Forty-three cyclists took part in the 2020 “founders’ ride,” a 130 km route from Winnipeg to Victoria Beach on Aug. 7. Looking sharp in matching jerseys and helped along by the energy of their fellow riders (and a much-welcomed south wind!), the group rose to the challenge – and had a lot of fun, too.

We’re excited to be taking part in a not-to-be-missed event!

Alex Martin is a 19-year-old kayaker, local to Victoria Beach. Last summer, Alex paddled solo around the entire shoreline of Lake Winnipeg to raise awareness for water stewardship.

Presented by the Victoria Beach Walk for Water Committee, this evening event is your opportunity to hear from Alex about his adventure, enjoy his photo presentation captured from the remote coastlines of Lake Winnipeg, and learn how this experience has shaped his view of this important lake.

When: Wednesday, July 24, 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.)

Walk for Water 2016

Walk for Water is the largest grassroots fundraising event in support of a healthy Lake Winnipeg. For many lake-lovers, participating has become an annual family tradition.

Three walks are being held this season in Dunnottar (July 24), Gimli (Aug. 7) and Victoria Beach (Aug. 7), organized by community volunteers with support from LWF. Proceeds are used to translate science into solutions: funding research, training citizen scientists, educating students and community groups, and addressing the root causes of harmful algae blooms by advancing the eight actions of the Lake Winnipeg Health Plan...
