It is with a great deal of disappointment that Smith Events and True North Sports + Entertainment, following consultation with the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, have determined that the presentation of Manyfest, scheduled for Sept 8-10 on Broadway, will not take place this year. Much effort was expended to explore alternative options however, a number of operational factors do not make it possible to run a successful event this year. Smith Events and True North look forward to continuing their long-standing collaboration with the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, as well as with the many partners and sponsors who have worked alongside us in previous years, to host ManyFest in the future. There are still plenty of options to enjoy events downtown this summer and fall! Many of them are free and can be enjoyed by folks of all ages. Free lunchtime concerts every Tuesday, Farmers’ Market every Thursday, Sea Bears pre-game parties, Burt Block Party, Nuit Blanche – the list goes on.
