Accessibility | Tourist info


Wheelchair accessibility – The Fringe strives to make as many of its venues as possible accessible by wheelchair. However, due to the temporary nature of many of the venues, it is difficult to have 100% wheelchair accessibility. Visit the Venue Map and List to find out which venues are accessible for wheelchair users and those with mobility impairments.

To facilitate easy access, patrons using wheelchairs are asked to check in at the venue 30 minutes before showtime.

Courtesy seating – indoor venues have a limited number of seats reserved for patrons with mobility challenges or who are low vision/blind, hard of hearing/Deaf or pregnant. To facilitate
easy access, we ask these patrons to check in at the performance venue ticket table 30
minutes before showtime.

Show accessibility – performances that are accessible for hard of hearing/Deaf, English as a second language and low vision/blind patrons are noted in applicable show descriptions provided by the performing companies. Some companies may also offer ASL or Relaxed Performances.

One of North America's most colourful and cosmopolitan neighbourhoods, THE EXCHANGE DISTRICT offers Winnipeg's finest cultural, dining and retail amenities. The 30-block district showcases North America's most extensive collection of turn-of-the-20th-century architecture, and is home to the city's unrivalled arts community.

Explore this historic, prairie city; start with breakfast in the French Quarter followed by a walking tour of The Exchange or have lunch at The Forks, a place where furs were traded hundreds of years ago. Whether it’s your first time in the city or you’ve lived here all your life, let TOURISM WINNIPEG help you discover or rediscover Winnipeg.


The Exchange District is home to so many wonderful restaurants. If you're on the move and looking for a bite to eat, try one of these restaurants in the area.

Of course, we heartily recommend visiting our food vendors and beverage patios at Old Market Square. That way, you can satisfy your hunger (and thirst) while enjoying live entertainment in a festival atmosphere!
