May 4 + 5: Third + Bird's Spring Market is Back and Better Than Ever

Old Man Winter may not have gotten the memo, but a sure sign of Spring in Winnipeg is right around the corner.

From May 4-5, the dynamic duo behind Third + Bird will be back with their fifth annual Spring Market. For you eager beavers, there’s also an Early Bird pre-shop the evening of Thursday, May 3 (tickets available here).

What has become Winnipeg’s ultimate urban shopping experience will take over an entire floor of the historic downtown Hudson’s Bay building for a weekend full of music, art, food and – of course – supporting local.

As usual, the market will feature the best makers Manitoba has to offer. With a curated lineup of 140+ vendors, you’ll find a diverse and eclectic mix of everything from decor and art to clothing and accessories and everything in between.
