The largest gathering of Molded Fibreglass Trailers in history
is coming to Winnipeg this summer.
From August 15-19 the historic event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the tiny boler travel trailer will be held at the Red River Exhibition Park. The Boler was first introduced in Winnipeg in 1968 and the park will be turned into a huge campground to celebrate this super Canadian anniversary. Leading up to the event, from August 11-15, 2018, caravans of trailers, that range from original 1968 trailers to a variety of new moulded fibreglass trailer models, all inspired by the original boler, will make their way across the country on their way to Winnipeg.
We are well into the event planning, you will be able to reserve your spot for the event soon, we are limited to a maximum of 1000 trailers so plan ahead. This is one event you cannot miss.
The park will open to the Public on Saturday August 18, 2018, for only $10 admission
Come for a day of Fibreglass, Fun, and Festivities.
Gates open at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday August 18, 2018
