Downtown’s beloved addition to Winnipeg’s wealth of festivals, the 6th annual Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries ManyFest street party, will animate Broadway from September 9-11 with an energetic atmosphere of arts, entertainment, and delicious cuisine, to draw people into heart of the city. Since its inception, ManyFest has attracted well over 250,000 people to downtown Winnipeg for an open, outdoor showcase of talent, community, and healthy living on the streets of downtown Winnipeg, beneath Broadway’s beautiful elm trees.
“ManyFest is truly a community festival bringing people together, downtown, from all corners of the city to enjoy Broadway, its rich history and a weekend filled with musicians, artisans, and fun activities,” says Stefano Grande, Chief Executive Officer of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ. “This year we’re excited to announce our new businesses—like Oh Doughnuts and The Common inside The Forks Market—are embracing ManyFest and finding new and exciting ways to get involved.”
Bigger & Better Events
For the first year ever, ManyFest’s Food Truck Wars area will be licensed! Festival-goers will be able to sip and savour beers and wines while waiting in line for delicious food truck cuisine. The Wine and Beer Garden, presented by SkyCity Centre will feature beer from Big Rock Brewery and over 20 varieties of wine.
KidSport Winnipeg has been selected as the charity of choice to receive a portion of the proceeds from the Wine and Beer Garden.
