Red River Ex June 16 to June 25
Red River Ex returns to Winnipeg for a busy June full of activities, food, entertainment and rides. It will run from June 16 to June 25. There are so many different audiences the Ex tries to reach out too from the music lover to midway enthusiast. In recent years, the annual event has tried to up their animal events and remind everyone that they continue to big supporters of agriculture. Nature also includes horses, dogs, butterflies and every other type of farm animal.
Three stages will feature music all day every day. Pick your day for teen bands, country band, tribute bands, local singers and artists and the big one this year Canadian platinum artists April Wine.
Parking is available at east and west entrances. Transit delivers to the gates as well. Food is plentiful and sometime this week, Access Winnipeg will show what is available during the Ex to eat while attending.
As always, be prepared for the weather sun or shine...pace yourself on rides that spin, listen to some talent at the stages and enjoy some family time.
