Visit Winnipeg



One of North America's most colourful and cosmopolitan neighbourhoods, The Exchange District offers some of 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 local spots.

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!


Our friends at The Fairmont are offering a special Fringe rate for the month of July. Enjoy a stay at Winnipeg's premier hotel, just a few blocks away from Old Market Square and many of the festival's indoor venues. Special rates start at $109 + tax.

To take advantage of the Fringe rate, please call the hotel directly at 204 957 1350 or the toll-free central reservations line at 1 800 441 1414. Simply mention the Winnipeg Fringe Festival and you'll have access to the discounted rate.
