The Countdown to the Canada Games is on! We are less than 50 days away from one of the largest sporting events ever to take place in our city. Featuring 16 sports, over 250 events and a major cultural festival, the 2017 Canada Games will welcome over 4,000 athletes and coaches and more than 20,000 visitors.
Power 97 artists on the bill include The Sheepdogs (Sun Aug 5 @ 21:45) and The Trews (Thur Aug 10 17:45) among others.
There are a ton of local acts of all kinds and even a Manitoba Night including the likes of Royal Canoe, William Prince, Fred Penner, and a special performance by the Crash Test Dummies with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
All the concerts will be free, easily accessible and open to the public. The Festival will also feature local artisans and food vendors. Each night’s concert will be capped off with fireworks. And yes, there will be beer gardens.
