  • Came here for a wedding reception. The atmosphere was great! But the food was meh. They had custom omelettes but there were only two cooking, so by the time they made omelettes for everyone, those ser...  more »
  • An icon to visit during Festival. You simply must do Fort Gibraltar if you're doing Festival du Voyageur in Feb. Great fun, great music, great history to be amazed by.  more »
  • We went there on 1 July (national holiday) so I don't know if it's always like that, but there were a lot of bilingual facilitators in period costume who made a very interesting visit. My kids loved it!

  • We were lucky enough to have our wedding at Fort Gibraltar at the end of July and we can't say enough about the venue. The food was incredible and many guests raved about it in the weeks that followed. Getting married on the picturesque porch area was an amazing experience for ourselves and for our friends and family that gathered together on the beautiful grounds area. The inside of Fort Gibraltar is stunning and all staff were extremely professional. We also were highly impressed with Angie who gave us great advice along the way and made the wedding planning process as well as the wedding itself smooth and stress free. Thanks again, would recommend a million times over.
  • I am a Marriage Commissioner and have had the pleasure of officiating many ceremonies at Fort Gibraltar. It is a unique venue in the heart of Winnipeg: where else can you be married within giant timber walls, participate in ax-throwing, be saluted by a musket party, and all within minutes of downtown? The staff at Fort Gibraltar is efficient and offers a wealth of knowledge in all matters wedding-related. Fort Gibraltar offers a variety of options for ceremony spaces. The grounds in front of the porch can accommodate 250 people for an outside ceremony...and the entrance through the gates is grand, indeed! The Great Hall, with its massive stone fireplace , is also an excellent ceremony space, and the Partners Room (upstairs loft area) is perfect for more intimate weddings. Fort Gibraltar can accommodate 140 people for a sit down meal (180 for a cocktail reception) in the Great Hall, and 48 people (60 for a cocktail reception) in the Partners Room. I have also had the pleasure to attend a wedding at Fort Gibraltar as a guest. The food was delicious and the serving staff, attentive. Ample parking is available, as well.
  • I am a Marriage Commissioner and often officiate at wedding ceremonies at Fort Gibraltar. The location of the Fort in Winnipeg is very central and easy to get to, and it can accommodate different sizes of weddings. In the summer months ceremonies are often held outdoors within the walls of the Fort and if the weather is nasty the ceremonies are moved inside. There is a very comfortable and intimate loft on the second floor which has access by elevator if needed, and the main floor of Fort Gibraltar has a rustic feel with a wonderful stone fireplace on a feature wall. The managing staff at Fort Gibraltar have been there for many years and are extremely personable and knowledgeable about weddings, and any other function that needs space and catering.
  • I promise you this is the best place to have your wedding. Amazing and extremely accommodating staff (especially when it comes to extreme dietary restrictions, they've got you covered!) Amazing food, very reasonable pricing and a beautiful venue at that. Thank you for making our wedding day amazing!
  • I had the privilege of being invited to 2 weekend weddings in a row at Fort Gibraltar this summer. I have gluten and dairy allergies that were expertly handled by Yve and Angie. They took great care of providing me with very tasty alternatives. Thank you so much!
