WINNIPEG — An estimated 70,000 people headed to downtown Winnipeg over the weekend, to take in the city’s annual ManyFest.
The festival took place on Broadway and Memorial Boulevard from Sept. 9 – 11, and celebrated with dozens of food trucks, live music and a wine and beer garden.
One of the festival’s most popular activities was the food truck wars. Thousands of Winnipeggers sampled and savoured delicious treats from over 33 different food trucks. Global’s Eva Kovacs was one of the judges lucky enough to try the delicious food. The winners were:
- Most Original: The Red Ember’s The Carrot Pizza
- Best Presentation: KYU Grill’s Big Wave
- Best Bang for Your Buck: Simba Safari Grill’s Chapati Burger
“There’s no doubt in my mind that downtown was the place to be this past weekend,” said Stefano Grande, Chief Executive Officer for the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ.
“It’s amazing to see thousands of Winnipeggers coming together from all across the city to celebrate our downtown and create an exciting energy and vibe in the heart of our city. Now that people have seen how amazing our downtown is, I encourage Winnipeggers to check out downtown all year-round.”
