The release of the OMazing lineup of instructors, speakers, and creators for this years' Prairie Love Festival means that ticket holders are now able to pre-register for their festival activity schedule. Creating your path for the weekend should be an exciting experience, where you get to decide what workshops resonate with where you're at in this point of your practice.

Here are answers to the questions we receive most to help make this process as seamless as possible.


1 - How many activities can I sign up for?

Your weekend pass (snowbird/earlybird/regularbird) allows you to pre-register to guarantee your space in a maximum 4 activities on each day (Saturday + Sunday). Passholders can attend as many workshops as you'd like throughout the weekend, pending space/availability in the workshop.

The Sweetest Saturday pass allows you to pre-register for 4 workshops on Saturday September 10th.

A Serene Sunday pass give your the ability to pre-register for 4 workshops on Sunday September 11th.

All pass-holders enjoy unlimited music + community celebrations throughout the weekend.


2 - I can't log in to sched.org

Sched is the scheduling app you will login to to create your activity schedule for Prairie Love Festival. Once you purchase your ticket, you will be sent an email invitation to login to sched.org

Your sched information will be the same as your Eventbrite & PayPal login. If you have forgotten your username/password, reset your password here.

3 - How do I pick my activities?

With over 70 workshops & activities to pick from, it can be overwhelming to craft your weekend of bliss. Create your schedule based on workshop themes, instructors, and where you are currently at in your practice. Remember to create a sustainable schedule, 4 strong vinyasa practices in a day can cause exhaustion and burn out, which contradicts our intention of creating a wellness experience.

Tips for creating a sustainable schedule:
• Treat yourself to at least one yin / restorative workshop per day
• Be inspired by a speakeasy session
• Take in a creative workshop
• Turn your focus inward with a guided mediation 
• Chant and connect with Kirtan
• Give yourself breaks throughout the day to eat, rest, and soak in the benefits of your practice.

4-  How long does it take to get from one venue to the next?

When creating your schedule, bear in mind that venues can be up to a 25 minute walk from each other. While the festival map isn't yet finalized, here are some points of reference to note when creating your schedule:

• Prairie Yogi MainStage, The Balance Point, and OM sweet OM are all within a few steps of each other.
• Lotus Lookout is a 10-15 minute walk south of the Big Sky Stage.
• The Lake and The Cabin venues are 20-25 minute walk north of the Big Sky Stage**
• Bicycles are permitted/encouraged at Fort Whyte Alive and can be used as a speedy way for participants to travel from one venue to the next.

**Shuttle service to The Lake and The Cabin venues will be offered every 10 minutes from the Big Sky Stage


5- How Do I apply for a Vendor Booth / Table?

If you are interested in being a part of the Trading Post at Prairie Love Festival, email laura@prairieyogi.com with the following information:

• Your Company Name
• Type of product/service you offer
• 2-3 photos of your product

6 - How do I find out about partnership opportunities with Prairie Love Festival?

8 - Can we camp at FortWhyte Alive?

Unfortunately, There is no camping at FortWhyte Alive.

9 - I'm from outside of Winnipeg, where should I stay?

The Paris of the Prairies has plenty of accommodations while you're here enjoying the festivities.

- The festival site is located in the South West Corner of the city (near Kenaston Commons)
- Festival sponsor The Fort Garry Hotel is offering a sweet corporate rate to festival attendees of $139/night. To book, call (204) 942-8251 and say you're a part of the Prairie Love Festival corporate rate. (We are also offering a complimentary shuttle that runs from the hotel to the park!)

10 - I purchased tickets for me and someone else. How do we pick our individual schedules?

When purchasing more than 1 ticket on Eventbrite, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you enter each attendees email address under each separate ticket in the registration process. One email address per attendee is required. This way each attendee will be sent their own login link to the scheduling app and be able to create their own schedule.

If you have already purchased more than one ticket and registered your email address under both passes, please login to eventbrite and transfer over all tickets to the each attendees email address.  If you continue to have technical difficulty email prairielovefestival@gmail.com.

11 - Something has happened, and I am no longer able to attend Prairie Love. Can I refund my ticket?

Prairie Love Festival passes are not refundable. You can however, transfer your ticket free of charge to someone else.

If you are unable to attend the festival, you can sell your ticket and transfer it to another through the Eventbrite transfer ticket option.  The Prairie Love Festival Facebook event could be a great place to connect with people who are looking to purchase tickets.
