Alleyways in the Exchange

Three Fridays. Four lanes. Infinite exploration.

This summer, there’s even more to explore in the Exchange District. Alleyways in The Exchange takes place on the last Friday each month, featuring a market, a gallery, audio performances, and an art lounge all against the backdrop of a National Historic Site in Winnipeg’s most walkable urban neighbourhood.

June 24. July 29. August 26.

Future of the Exchange

The Exchange District reflects Winnipeg’s past while shining a light on its future potential as a sustainable and creative city.

The Exchange District Plan 2022 was adopted by Winnipeg City Council in February of 2022 and will inform the City’s upcoming Downtown Secondary Plan.
