RAW:ALMOND AT THE FORKS

FRIDAY, JAN 19 - TUESDAY, FEB 13, 2018

In 2013 with only a dream, a chef and a designer set to create a temporary tasting room on the frozen river during the coldest months Winnipeg has to offer. Seems crazy? It was. With dedication and perseverance we pushed through. Now 6 years and counting. The event has grown in size and scope - more elaborate designs, more guest chefs. It has also grown to other locations, Polar Bear Capital of the world Churchill and now Tokyo at a mystery location. http://www.raw-almond.com

 

 

 

 

 

WARMING HUTS AT THE FORKS

FRIDAY, JAN 26 - END OF SKATING SEASON, 2018

Started in 2009, Warming Huts: An Art + Architecture Competition on Ice has been melding world-class design and art with Winnipeg’s famous winters. The competition has seen entries from across the globe and caught the attention of international architecture publications and awards. Competition winners travel to Winnipeg to construct their warming huts during a weeklong building blitz, giving designers a chance to watch their vision come to life while allowing the public to watch them at work. Warming huts are then brought out to the Red River Mutual Trail for visitors to skate to, interact with, and enjoy. Warming Huts is an open competition, supported by the Manitoba Association of Architects. http://www.warminghuts.com
