After Interstellar: Wine Tasting, Great Food & Dance-worthy Music

Posted on Jul 21, 2016 by The Forks Market

Last year, Interstellar Rodeo rocked the festival stage at The Forks, bringing an incredible lineup of artists to the inaugural event.

This year’s festival — running August 12-14 — has upped the ante, featuring a fantastic cross-section of artists that run the gamut from rising stars (Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Fantastic Negrito) to music icons (Wilco, the supergroup case/lang/veirs) and beyond.

But there’s more to the festival than just great music. Each artist is paired with a feature wine chosen by Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson, the festival’s wine curator.

This year’s festivities are going into the wee hours on the Saturday night with the addition of After Interstellar, the official Interstellar Rodeo afterparty being thrown by Winnipeg Wine Cru.

The newly renovated Forks Market Food Hall will be the place to be on Saturday, August 13 from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Whether you’re a festival attendee or are simply looking for a fun night of music, food and wine, After Interstellar has got you covered.

Things kick off with a complimentary wine and food sampling until 11:30 p.m., and will be followed by a rocking performance by locals Duotang, who are bringing some very special surprise guests for After Interstellar. The party will keep going into the night thanks to tunes spun by local party favourite DJ Co-op.

Don’t worry — once the wine and food sampling wraps up, you will still be able to grab a glass of your favourite beer or wine from The Common, The Forks’ craft beer and wine kiosk. With 20 beers and 20 wines available, there’s something to please every palate.

Tickets for After Interstellar are $50, or $40 for Interstellar Rodeo weekend pass holders and Grand Cru members of Winnipeg Wine Cru ( For tickets, visit
