April is off to a great start with tons of great events happening all over Winnipeg.


1. Fresh start

Spring is certainly the time for sprucing things up, especially when it comes to our homes.

The Winnipeg Home + Garden Show is full of experts, who are full of great ideas on all sorts of projects.

These experts are both local business owners who are well-known throughout the community, and folks who are known a little more nationally, like HGTV Canada’s Carson Arthur and ‘Masters of Flip’ Dave and Kortney Wilson.

2. Reach for the stars 

This Sunday, the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre will be packed with some of our province’s best athletes, all hoping to get their shot at the Olympics.

It’s called the RBC Training Ground and it’s a FREE event for athletes between 14 and 25 to show their stuff to Olympic officials.

Athletes with potential will be invited to the national final, which will see the top 30 competitors named RBC Future Olympians.

From there, they’ll receive the funding and resources they need to pursue their Olympic dreams.

So if you, or someone you know is between the ages of 14 and 25 and have ever thought of making it to the Olympic level, this could be your opportunity!


3. Girl’s Night Out

For the fourth year in a row now, the super popular Thunder From Down Under show is returning to Winnipeg.

It’s no surprise to see why the shows continue to sell out.
