Top three things to do around Winnipeg the weekend of June 22
With her weekly pick of fun things to do on the weekend, here is the rundown from Global News Morning’s Kahla Shea.
The first official weekend of summer is stuffed to the brim with events to get you out and about!
1. Cheers to the Weekend
Nothing says summer for many folks like enjoying a cold bevvy with close friends. Well, the Flatlander’s Beer Festival will have you raising a glass to good times and a good cause.
It runs Friday and Saturday and features more than 100 booths and 375 different beers.
These brews come from all over the world but there are also 20 local breweries being featured with more than 90 products.
Plus, there’s delicious dishes being served up by a variety of food trucks on the floor level of Bell MTS Place.
Tickets start at $42.95 and are available through Ticketmaster and Winnipeg Liquor Mart locations. Designated driver tickets are also available so you can enjoy the Fest alcohol-free and provide a safe ride home for others.
2. ‘Shakespearing’ it up
If you have yet to take in a Shakespeare in the Ruins performance, I highly suggest you do.
I think they are so unique and so cool and seeing my first production back in high school made me look at the classics in a whole new way and actually start to appreciate them!
WATCH: Hamlet’s a heroine
Hamlet is the current masterpiece to hit the ‘stage’ at the Trappist Monastery Provincial Heritage Park in St. Norbert.
And after 20 years of producing amazing work, they still find ways to keep it fresh and exciting.
This version of Hamlet features a woman in the title role, a super talented cast and a live drummer scoring the show!
The play wraps up Saturday and tickets are starting to sellout. You can get your here.
3. National Indigenous Peoples Day
Friday is National Indigenous Peoples Day and the entire weekend is full of fun events taking place all across Manitoba.
The goal is to celebrate while educating people about the culture and diversity of First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples.
Happy weekend everyone!
