Welcome to the Exchange District

Arts and cultural district in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. Restaurants, galleries, boutique shopping and so much more.

Winnipeg's Original Downtown

Independent. Local. Historic.

Walk outdoors from shop to shop and get a bite to eat or something to sip along the way.

The Exchange District is Winnipeg’s premier local and independent shopping destination with more than 40 one-of-a-kind retailers within a 10-minute cobblestoned walk.

Shop local this holiday season. Shop the Exchange.
