Osborne Village Canada Day Street Celebration
June 30 to July 2
As we head into the entertainment packed days of summer, the Osborne Village Biz is preparing to launch its annual Canada Day Celebration – Winnipeg’s largest and longest running street festival. Originally established to commemorate the nation’s birthday, the event has evolved into a celebration of the people, shops, and restaurants of one of the most unique communities in the city. Each year, Osborne Village takes on a market atmosphere with musicians, artisans, restaurants and food vendors filling Osborne Street from River Avenue to McMillan.
The music is eclectic and showcases some of Winnipeg’s hottest performers. While listening to the music, browse the many shops and artisan booths with their wares of jewelry, clothing (new and vintage), accessories and handbags, art work, and cds. Or mark the occasion with some body art – perhaps a permanent tattoo, or for the less committed, a henna or air-brush version.
The many fine restaurants and cafés in the Village will be serving up their house specialties – from sushi to patay, African to Australian – a fusion of cuisines from around the world. Outdoor patios abound with savoury delights. As well, a variety of vendors will be selling street food such as Chinese barbecue, mini donuts, fries, hot dogs, ice cream, fresh squeezed lemonade, and more.
Sing and dance in the street at the Osborne Village Canada Day Street Celebration. No entry fee necessary, all are welcome.
