Local performers will take over the patio at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on Friday evenings in July and August.

Performances will be free to enjoy, with bites and sips available from the Museum’s Boreal Café. From DJs to classical music, there are options to suit all tastes. Reservations are available by calling the Café at (204) 289‑2187.

“The patio at the Museum is truly an undiscovered gem in Winnipeg,” said Darrel Nadeau, CMHR Vice‐President of Visitor Experience. “With great music, a fabulous menu and incredible ambiance this free series is a must‐visit for Winnipeggers this summer.”
