The Cube in Old Market Square is the best place to catch your favourite local live acts for free, this Saturday, June 10th! Kicking things off at 2:30pm is the soulful Sol James, followed by indie rock heroes Lanikai at 4, roots songwriter Scott Nolan at 5:30, and fancy folk friends, Red Moon Road, wrap things up at 7! You’ll also be able to enjoy delicious food on-site by Chosabi and Miss Browns. Presented as part of WildWoodRose Vintage Market.

THE EATS

King + Bannatyne

The patio is open at the first sandwich shop in Winnipeg dedicated to making hand-crafted, slow roasted meat sandwiches (and yes – there are veggie options). The fact that owner Mike Del Buono changes up the menu on a regular basis will keep you coming back again and again (and again).

THE DISPLAY

Abstractivity at cre8ery

Winnipeg abstract artist Meagan Brown’s new exhibit, Abstractivity, follows up showings in Japan and Los Angeles, featuring works that “look at the blurred perception of the world and (herself),” according to her artist statement, in which she also notes that she found her patriotism in a giant moose and her creativity in a collection of colourful circles.
