We’ll be kick­ing off the fes­tiv­i­ties on Fri­day, June 7th with a free event in the WECC’s Ven­tu­ra Hall at 8:00PM, fea­tur­ing our friends from Sun­shine House! Come see our space, play some BIN­GO with the fab­u­lous drag queens of the Sun­shine Bunch and win some great prizes gen­er­ous­ly donat­ed by neigh­bour­hood busi­ness­es, and hear West Cen­tral favourites JD and the Sun­shine Band.

On Sat­ur­day, June 8th, we’ll be enjoy­ing the weath­er and each other’s com­pa­ny out­side all after­noon from 12:00PM to 4:00PM on Ellice Avenue between Sher­brook and Lang­side Streets. We are thrilled to announce our out­door music line­up of The Lion’s Den (rau­cous and fun-filled fam­i­ly enter­tain­ment from the two Daniels of Red Moon Road), Girls Rock Win­nipeg (camper bands from Girls Rock and Adult Rock Camps), Mul­li­grub (upbeat emo garage pop trio), Super Duty Tough Work (sev­en-piece hip hop super­group), and Indi­an City (award win­ning Indige­nous folk-pop band cre­at­ed by Vince Fontaine, founder of Eagle & Hawk)! These local bands will pro­vide a sound­track for all ages for the after­noon which also includes craft mak­ing, face paint­ing, a kid’s play area, wan­der­ing per­form­ers, a mer­chant vil­lage large­ly com­posed of area res­i­dents, com­mu­ni­ty tables, a BBQ, and more!

Con­sid­er this your invi­ta­tion to join in the fun and cel­e­bra­tion of our com­mu­ni­ty. We’re so look­ing for­ward to this unof­fi­cial kick­off to sum­mer and the chance to relax out­doors and enjoy our neigh­bours’ com­pa­ny. Vol­un­teers are always welcome!
