Conceived as a love letter to Winnipeg, CURRENT was created by and for people passionate about the best of everything our city has to offer.
CURRENT Winnipeg will showcase the best in local sips, sounds, art and eats, and will be presented with our passion for quality, comfort and good design.
You love spending time outside in summer … you also love sleeping in your own beds.
You love having a cold beverage in the sun with friends … but not just anything. You want local craft beer, great cocktails with local spirits and a quality wine menu.
You love grabbing a quick bite … and you want to enjoy the creativity of our local chefs without truck exhaust or generator hum.
You love hanging out with friends … and then you love biking, walking, car-sharing or dancing back to your home at the end of the night.
You love outdoor events … and you want to show up in style. You don’t want to pull out the “clothes you don’t mind ruining” to enjoy the outdoors.
We believe that you don’t have to compromise your preferences and tastes to spend a great weekend outside with friends.
At CURRENT, everyone is a VIP. The comforts go beyond what is offered by existing events and festivals in Manitoba. Sit on soft furnishings and eat in a beautifully designed food hall.
