TODAY at Winnipeg Design Festival!


Park[ing] Day This is a FREE Event.

PARK(ing) Day is an annual, global event where citizens, artists, designers and activists transform metered parking spaces into temporary public parks, raising awareness of the importance of creating humane, sustainable, urban culture.

Multiple installations from a diverse range of groups transform parking stalls into ‘pop-up’ places that encourage Winnipeggers from all walks of life to consider issues like the importance of public space ownership, car addiction, active living, healthy communities and the value of street life.
