The space where the old Winnipeg Folk Festival music store was will soon see life as an art gallery and tea room to open in the next short while.
The building at 221 Bannatyne at the comer of Letinsky Place is at the back of what was once the Crocus building. Pita Pit is right next door.
It is directly across from Old Market Square and while it won’t be open for Jazz Winnipeg Fest, it is likely to be a huge attraction for Winnipeg Fringe Festival.
Students, residents, concert goers and business people in the area are likely to be very happy with yet another option bring critical mass for food and entertainment to the district.
