Lovers of all things local, the husband-wife duo of Ryan and Jessica Bowman launched We Heart Winnipeg to help spread the word about the people, places and things that make them proud to call Winnipeg home: killer food (so, so much food), world-class events, a vibrant arts scene, gorgeous greenspace, community markets, stellar music, a thriving start-up movement and an eclectic collection of neighbourhoods for every lifestyle. And most of all, the amazing people.

We know Winnipeg isn’t perfect. But it’s ours, potholes and all.

And instead of focusing on the negative, we’re here to celebrate the best our city has to offer. That means sharing stories that will put a smile on your face. It means spreading the word about events you might not know about. It means exploring our city and discovering the best-kept secrets and hidden gems.

If we want Winnipeg to thrive, we can’t take our city’s treasures for granted. We need to attend community events, support our independent shops and eat at local restaurants. We need to embrace our differences, celebrate our diversity and support our neighbours. And we need to remember that Winnipeg will only ever be what we make of it.

At the end of the day, we hope We Heart Winnipeg brings us all a little bit closer and makes our community a little bit stronger. Who’s with us?

Long live local
