What is CURRENT?

We are creating a summer weekend event that we want to attend: an event that gathers together a community of people who share our love and appreciation for our city. CURRENT creates an experience for you that can’t find anywhere else. We're compiling the best this city has to offer in one place, for one weekend, every year.


So, if you love Winnipeg, save yourself a plane ticket and hotel costs and make your next summer event experience a local one, in every sense. CURRENT is designed just for you.


CURRENT – To Winnipeg, With Love

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 bed.


You love having a cold beverage in the sun with friends ... but not just any beverage. 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.


Enjoy basking in the sweet sounds of a favourite act with small-batch local beer and fine restaurant fare in hand, all with little-to-no-lineups, thanks to RFID technology and cashless wristbands.


Participate in interactive art and activities surrounded by the beauty of Winnipeg’s most iconic skyline and popular urban meeting place, The Forks.

At CURRENT, everything is touched by Winnipeg tastemakers and style.
