1. Map out your schedule
There's a ton happening at The Forks on Monday, AND over the Walkway on Waterfront towards the Exchange District Stage at Stephen Juba Park so check the schedule and make sure you know where you want to be, and when you need to be there.
2. Pack the essentials
Pack your favorite backpack with everything you'll need for the day. Here is a quick checklist of essentials:
- Water bottle (to refill at the water fountains in The Forks Market, or in CN Field)
- A blanket to sit on
- Some snacks or some cash for the food trucks
- Your favorite pair of shades
3. Get to know the lyrics!
Concerts are so much more fun when you can sing along with the band, EH? Manitoba Music has put together an amazing playlist of the musicians playing on Canada Day:
4. Dress the part
Take everything you own that's red and white and find a place to put it. We're talking layers of red and white + don't forget to accessorize!
Don't have much red and white? Pick up a tee or hat with a maple leaf on it at Two Rivers in The Forks Market.
5. Pick a fireworks viewing spot
The fireworks start at 11:00 p.m., so make sure you get a spot early. The best ones fill up quickly! Some of the dreamiest spots are down by the river, along Tache Ave across the river, and on top of the hill in CN Field.
6. Plan how you'll get here
We see thousands of people here on Canada Day, which means our parking lots usually reach capacity at some point in the day. Plan to park off-site and walk on over, hop on a trasit bus or the Splash Dash Water Bus, or get on your bike + ride! We'll have free bike valet on-site all day (like a coat check for your bike!)
See you Canada Day, Winnipeg!
