Osborne Village Canada Day Street Festival

Osborne Village, one of Canada’s Greatest Neighborhoods, will be having its annual Canada Day Street Festival. Out of all the Canada Day events in the city, this has to be our favourite. The entire block of Osborne Village is closed down for a huge street party.


Canada Day is often the busiest day for all beaches around Winnipeg. If the weather stays right, expect every single beach to be crowded. Birds Hill is usually the busiest – so busy that you can’t even see any sand. Make sure to set your alarms early on Canada Day to guarantee yourself a spot in the warm sand.

Have a great Canada Day Winnipeg!!!
