THE FESTIVAL

the festival crowd

 

The DIY Homesteader Festival, brought to life in 2013, is a one-of-a-kind event in Manitoba, that offers people a fun and warm way to learn important skills they can bring into their modern life. The festival started with the hope that, given the right environment, people would want to take the leap to learn these once common skills – from food preservation to raising chickens. Now, it’s become so much more. It’s a place for folks to come out and spend the day connecting with a like-minded community – and to let their inner homesteader shine. The festival objective is simple: to connect Manitobans with the skills they need to lead a more sustainable lifestyle and to bring them together with the farmers, producers, artisans and crafters who can provide them with the support they need to take the first step…

 

 

THE CO-FOUNDERS

 

Kris Antonius and Mike Berg, together with festival co-founders Adrienne & Trevor Percy (now whipping up goodness in Saskatoon), wondered what their dream festival would be like. And then they created it. Kris and Mike combine the sensibilities of modern life with a strong desire to preserve and share the skills that sustained past generations and made our communities strong and vibrant. Kris is the purveyor of Tiny Peasant – a blog and shop dedicated to holistic and nature based learning for families. Mike runs a boutique game design firm called We Heart Games, and along with Kris, owns Cityfolk Creative (the design force behind the Fest).
