Things To Do in Winnipeg on Canada Day!

Authored by: Nicole Fletcher on June 24, 2013

Canada Day is fast approaching and there is so much to do in Winnipeg for the long weekend! Be part of the Living Flag at the Legislature, peruse the various shops and stalls in Osborne Village, head down to The Forks for an afternoon of music, food, and fireworks, or stay in and have your own barbeque! But don't forget to celebrate your Canadian heritage with a visit to the WAG to see 100 Masters! Although the WAG is usually closed on Mondays we decided to open specially for Canada Day, allowing Manitobans to view some of the best works of art from across Canada.

What are your Canada Day plans? Don't forget we love to hear from you so please share your photos and comments with us on Twitter and Facebook!

  • If you have not checked out 100 Masters yet you are missing an amazing show. Block several hours at least and just go. You won't regret it.

  • Saw 100 Masters again last night, and it always satisfies! Happy to hear you're open on Canada Day. A great way to celebrate Canada's birthday is by looking at some of its best art.
