2023 Manitoba 55+ GAMES

PRRA TO HOST THE 2023 Manitoba 55+ GAMES
The Portage Regional Recreation Authority (PRRA) is excited to announce that they have been awarded hosts for the 2023 Manitoba 55+ Games. The games will take place throughout the community from June 20 – 22, 2023.

The PRRA submitted a bid to host the 2021 Manitoba 55+ Games prior to the pandemic. The games were virtual in 2021 and this year Selkirk was finally able to host following 2 years of being unable to. The PRRA was ecstatic to receive the news that the bid was successful and recognize how important events like these are to our community. On June 8th it was officially announced that the 2023 Manitoba 55+ Games will be held in Portage la Prairie.

There will be many committees and volunteer opportunities for community members. More details will be available in the coming months as planning begins.
