About the Venue
The Park Theatre is now in its tenth year of operations and has grown into one of Winnipeg’s premier live event venues. With over 300 events a year spanning music, comedy, theatre, and film, the room has become home to an expansive community of artists.
In 2014 The Park Theatre was awarded “Venue of the Year” at the Western Canadian Music Award’s, after being nominated for the same award in both 2012 and 2013.
The venue itself is a renovated movie theatre that opened in the fall of 1915. While many of Winnipeg’s neighbourhood theatres have been demolished or “repurposed” into bowling alleys or retail stores. The Park managed to hold out for 73 years before fate caught up with it. After sitting vacant for nearly a decade it was revived into what is now one of Winnipeg’s most popular live music venues.

With its high quality sound, great atmosphere, two full service bars, and premier live entertainment from local acts to international touring artists, it’s no wonder that artist and audience alike keep coming back.
