About the River Barge Festival:
This five-day performing arts festival took advantage of Winnipeg’s beautiful summer days and evenings by gathering at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers at the historic Forks. More than 20,000 people came down to enjoy performances by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Manitoba Theatre Centre, Luke Doucet and the White Falcon, Papa Mambo, Chic Gamine, J.C. Campbell & Tracy Bone, and many, many more. More than 30,000 people enjoyed ARTS FOR ALL over the five day event, and over 10,000 attended the concert with the WSO alone.
