Winterfest 2019 will once again be returning to the RBC Convention Centre (RBC CC) on 375 York Avenue, just off of the Trans-Canada highway (Portage Avenue). Because of the RBC CC’s excellent facilities and amiable staff, we’re ecstatic to be back, and the RBC CC is more than happy to help us in making the convention run as smoothly as possible. Parking is available underneath the Centre and at nearby hotels and parking lots, and the facility is fully handicap accessible. In addition, the Delta Hotel is conveniently located across the street from the Centre, and is directly attached to the RBC CC by an overhead skywalk.

Downtown Winnipeg

If you need to take a break from the convention, downtown Winnipeg has much to offer. Numerous restaurants are within walking distance to help satiate your appetite: from the food court at the nearby Portage Place, right up to classy establishments like Ichiban’s Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar, adjacent to the Delta Hotel building. The Forks and Exchange districts have a unique, historical feel all to their own, the latter of which hosts the summertime Winnipeg Fringe Festival, where you can view all sorts of alternative theatre unavailable anywhere else. In Winnipeg, there’s always something new for you to do!

Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Where Winnipeg Transportation
