What's Up in WPG: Sept. 8-10

September 8 | Alleyways Market in The Exchange | 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Get your shop on and support local at the summer’s final Alleyways Market in the Exchange District. Taking over the back lane at Elgin Avenue, some of our city’s best vendors will be serving up a winning mix of handmade goods, ready-to-eat snacks and fresh, locally-produced food.

September 8-10 | Manyfest

Get your grub on at Winnipeg’s biggest street festival. For the seventh straight year, Manyfest will be taking over the corner of Broadway and Memorial for a weekend full of food trucks, beer gardens and local entertainment. This year’s edition features more than 40 of the city’s top food trucks and local acts like Mise En Scene, The Treble and more.

September 8 & 9 | Manitoba Dragon Boat Festival

The 2017 Canadian Cancer Society September Dragon Boat Challenge will take place at the Manitoba Canoe and Kayak Centre. It’s a unique event that is a favourite amongst paddlers from the most novice to the expert. With just 10 paddlers and a drummer needed, it’s a race that allows families, friends, and co-workers to get together for some fun and to raise funds for the cancer fight. Racing starts at 6:00 PM on Friday, and starts again at 9:00 AM on Saturday, finishing at 3:00 PM.

September 9 & 10 | Chinatown Street Festival

The street festival is an open festival with a merchant market, lantern riddles, multicultural performances, kids zone, petting zoo and much more.

September 9 & 10 | Playoff baseball at Shaw Park

Our hometown Goldeyes have once again made the playoffs and are seeking their fourth league championship. What better way to spend a splendid September evening cheering them on at the park? Game 3 of their best-of-five series against the Lincoln Saltdogs goes Saturday at 6:05 p.m., with Sunday’s matchup starting at 4:05 p.m. (the series is tied 1-1). Get tickets here or visit the box office at Shaw Park.

September 10 | Banjo Bowl at Investors Group Field | 2 p.m.

Backed by a sea of royal blue, the Bombers (7-3) will be looking to score some revenge against the rival Saskatchewan Roughriders (5-4) after a 38-24 loss in the Labour Day Classic. Great as the rematch should be, we hope you got your tickets early. The game has been sold out for more than a week, but can be seen on TSN.
