As Winnipeg approaches another Canada Day, The Forks has announced that they’ll be presenting a virtual online show for the second year in a row. Join The Forks online on both Facebook and YouTube today at 1:00pm for a free 30-minute virtual program featuring some of Manitoba’s best performers:
- Sage Percussion and Emily Solstice
- Fortune Block
- Plé Collective (Theatre Piece)
- Rainbow Tornadoes with Sandi Bay
- Mattmac with Boogey The Beat
- The 12/21 (O Canada to Fireworks)
In showcasing the rich and diverse talent found in our province and striving to acknowledge the history of the site and its origins, the Forks’ Indigenous Curator, Dr. Niigaan Sinclair, will offer some thoughts at the beginning of the show, which will be followed by a moment of silence to honour the children lost and now found.
Elders Barb and Clarence Nepinak will provide a blessing. Hosts Debbie Patterson and Ryan Guy Richard will kick off the show, and the show will wrap up with a virtual fireworks display.
