South Junction serves the surrounding communities as a hub of local businesses and unique events.
South Junction traces its origins back to the early 1900s. The town was named for the two railways constructed in 1903, connecting Western Canada to the U.S.A. and connecting the Sprague subdivision to the Emerson port of entry. This junction was the most southerly junction on the Sprague subdivision. Residents did mixed farming and forestry work.
The Community Today
The J.L. Sturk Memorial Park hosts annual Canada Day festival – an evening event featuring fireworks, live music and free food. It also has two ball diamonds and a playground. July 4th is South Junction’s save-the-date because of their annual family slow pitch tournament. Running on select weekends and weekdays throughout the year is the Southeast Farmer’s Market, featuring local producers and crafters.
