Where is the camping/tenting site for Fire and Water?
Located on Highway #502, lot #30 in Lac du Bonnet, tenting is right on the site.
RV’s at the following pin, or across from lot #90, on Highway #502.
74 MB-502, Lac du Bonnet, MB R0E 1A0, Canada
We have parking, security and camping volunteers on site when you arrive to help you out. Volunteers will assist tenters with getting their gear on to the site.
There are portable toilets on the site and at the RV area. Unfortunately we cannot provide power to our camping areas, and ask, should you need to run a generator, that you do so respectfully during the hours of 10 am to 6 pm.
Can I bring my dog?
We, well I, love dogs but sometimes they can be a bit much in a crowd. Let’s try to be good pet owners, pick up after your doggie, while in the site keep them on a lead. If dogs are not happy, FnW is not happy. We don’t want to have complaints as this would ruin it for all.
What else is there to do in LDB?
Lac du Bonnet has many walking trails, Blueberry Rock and The Ponds for example, but the site is located on an old train track/rv trail so there are miles to walk if you so choose.
OH AND DON”T FORGET THE FARMERS MARKET!
Located in the town of LdB Saturday from 10 am - 1 pm, it’s the second biggest Farmers Market in MB, next to the St. Norbert market. Go early to get the best selection of baking and veggies.
Food? Groceries? Gas? Bars?
The Town of Lac du Bonnet is less than a kilometer from the festival site, an easy bike ride or walk. Grocery stores, restaurants, Cottage Country Cannabis, MLCC, Bakery (all in the same block). Gas stations are on the outside of town, Gulf, Petrocan and Coop. Times of operations vary so check ahead.
FOOD TRUCKS will be on site; Ms Tiny’s Jamaican Food, Red Mini Donut Trailer and Munchies Hot dog cart will be running all day for the 3 days.
Liquor on Site?
The festival will have a fully stocked bar and craft beers (Kilter Brewery) on sale (liquor tickets $6 each). Because we are a licensed event it is unlawful to bring your own alcohol on to the site. There will be a bag/cooler check at the gate.
There is an RV dump/water station as you enter the town, in the Town of Lac du Bonnet yard off Minnewawa St, Look for the Fire Department and the road next to it!
There is a place to swim at the site, it’s not “the Beach” but easy enough to walk in. FnW does not endorse swimming on site so it’s swim at your own risk. If you want the beach, it’s a short 1K walk to a lovely beach and play structure area.
Schedule of Performances?
You can find the schedule on our website here: https://firenwater.ca/2023-schedule. Times may vary but we will do our best to keep you updated.
Cash or Credit Card?
We will accept both and there are ATM’s close by, but let’s not forget what happened last year at Folk Fest, technology is not always reliable.
Speaking of technology, like most cottage areas, cell service becomes sketchy during the weekends. Great time to go unplugged.
Again, although we love them, they are not allowed in the Town of Lac du Bonnet without a permit.
Fire Pits in camping areas?
Due to the coziness of our camping areas we can not provide fire pits. There are fire pits on site, and feel free to ask for one to be fired up if you want to roast some marshmallows. We can do that for you.
Disorderly conduct is not tolerated. This includes drunkenness, rowdy or otherwise disorderly conduct, obscene, crude or abusive language, taking inappropriate or non-consensual photographs or video and/or failure to follow directions from Festival staff and volunteers.
