Every Friday we’ll be letting you know about a few choice happenings in the Exchange! If you have an idea for something to be featured, email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Five Ways to Exchange” in the subject line.
12th Annual Soca Reggae Festival
All weekend long, enjoy the chilled out summer sounds of reggae in Old Market Square! Featuring headliners Isha Blender and Everton, as well as local favourite Ras Tamils among others, you’d be a fool not to get your jam on!
Tickets are $10 and available at the gates. Visit socareggaefestival.ca for a full artist lineup and more.
The home of the sushi burrito, Chosabi Asian Eatery is a fast, fresh, and casual experience when you’re in the mood for a snack or a sit down delight. Delicious enough to spawn two additional locations, the original Exchange District Chosabi at 100 King Street features bowls, burritos, and a great selection of tea, coffee, beer, wine and more!
Visit chosabi.com for a full menu, hours, and more.
Toad Hall Toys
With a unique selection of cuddly critters and stimulating puzzles, Toad Hall isn’t your average toy store (and that’s the way we like it). Located at 54 Arthur Street, this Winnipeg institution has everything you need for reading, building, gaming, and more from over 50 countries around the world. That, and their model train selection is second to none.
Visit toadhalltoys.ca for more information.
The EXchange Marks the Spot Family Tour
Every Saturday at 11am this summer, you’ve got a chance to join your child on a journey through the historic Exchange geared toward them! With a fun activity book and plenty of exercise, this brand new tour (a partnership with the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation) is a great way to engage with and enjoy the Exchange.
We recommend you book in advance, as the tour books up fast. The cost is $10 per child and is free for parents/chaperones.
Aspects at cre8ery gallery and studio
A collaborative exhibit between multimedia artist Cindy Garrioch, painter Orly Hasid, illustrator Dan Hawksworth, abstract painter Shosh Shalev-Minuk, and visual artist Connie Wawruck-Hemmet, Aspects finds these diversely disciplined local artists contributing a different aspect of themselves and their perception of the world through their art. On now until July 18.
