One of the loveliest public spaces in Winnipeg and a must-see for any visitor. The Forks is an exquisite riverside attraction in the heart of downtown Winnipeg.
We’ve been a meeting place for over 6,000 years. Early Aboriginal peoples traded at The Forks, followed by European fur traders, Métis buffalo hunters, Scottish settlers, riverboat workers, railway pioneers and tens of thousands of immigrants.
Today, framed by the banks of the two rivers, The Forks is Winnipeg’s number one tourist destination with more than four million visitors annually.
Winter, spring, summer or fall, The Forks is a must for a stunning array of dining experiences, incomparable shopping, a constantly changing slate of entertainment and events, and many unique attractions that encompass the site’s natural, historic and man-made features.
The tenants of The Forks continue to slowly and cautiously reopen. The Forks Market is now open for indoor seating at reduced capacity, along with the outdoor patio seating. The building itself will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Tenants will open within those hours but may vary from tenant to tenant. Some are still closed at this time.
