Red River Exhibition Park
Address: 3977 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB, R3K 2E8
Located just outside the west Perimeter next to Assiniboia Downs, Red River Exhibition Park is the area's most versatile event destination centre and is home to exciting events, such as the Red River EX and Canad Inns Winter Wonderland. The Park is comprised of approximately 80 acres of land with an additional 400 acres available for future growth and expansion.
From June 14 to 23, hundreds of thousands of visitors will flood the Park for the annual Red River EX, where live entertainment, interactive exhibits, vendors, a midway, talent and art shows can be experienced by audiences of all ages. Learn about agriculture and animals, experience the thrill of a roller coaster, play games of chance on the midway and watch a free concert from a wide range of performers who get enthusiastic crowds singing and dancing nightly.
In summer months, the ever-popular Red River Farmers’ Market runs every Saturday from mid-July to mid-September. Browse stalls filled with fresh produce, crafts made by local artisans, delicious jams and preserves, locally raised meat, baking and more.
Building up to the spirited holiday season, the Park transforms into Manitoba's largest and most dazzling drive-through light show. From early December to early January, Canad Inns Winter Wonderland features more than one million lights in more than 25 themed areas, during a 2.5 km drive, all viewed from the comfort of your vehicle.
