  • Event will be held in location in Winnipeg that is accessible by public transportation.

I purchased tickets and can no longer attend. Can I get a refund?

  • Tickets are non-refundable but are transferrable. If you cannot attend, please forward all the relevant information to whoever will be replacing you. You do not need to inform event coordinators, simply send them the information required and ask them to report to their Table Captain when they get to the event.

  • All the seats must be filled, rain or shine.

    • If you or any of your guests are unable to attend for any reason, you are responsible for finding an alternate guest to fill the seat. If there is an empty seat, future attendance may be at risk.

The weather looks less than ideal. Will the event be post-poned or cancelled?

  • The event will proceed rain or shine. We love planning events but even we can’t coordinate 1200 people’s schedules to find a new date! 

  • Watch the forecast and plan appropriately.

    • Cool and/or rainy? Wear warm clothes and bring rain gear – ideally these items will also follow the Winnipeg white-out dress code 

      • Tip: Clear, plastic ponchos and umbrellas are often available at Dollorama or other inexpensive stores

    • Sunny? Bring sunscreen and hats … so far it has always been hot and sunny! We don’t se any reason for that to change this year!

Do I have to bring anything?

  • NEW: In the past, guests have had to bring their own chair. Now all chairs will be provided by the event. 

  • Bring cash for the bars. We do accept credit card but it is much faster with cash and you don’t want to spend valuable party time in line-ups!

  • Everything else is provided for you!

Is any alcohol included in the ticket price? What will be available for purchase? How do I buy alcohol? How much will alcohol cost? How can I pay?

What is on the menu? I’m vegan/vegetarian/celiac/have other dietary restrictions – what can I expect?

  • Our chefs create a menu focused on fresh, local ingredients

  • The meal is served family-style so our chefs are careful to plan the menu to accommodate as many common dietary restrictions/preferences as possible. 

  • At least 2/3 of the dishes are meat-free.

  • All food is completely nut free and the majority of the dishes are gluten and dairy free. 

    • Food is prepared in a facility that contains nuts, gluten and diary but the chefs are careful of cross contamination. 

  • If you have a severe allergy, dine at your own risk.

  • Vegans can be accommodated, if identified one week prior to the event.

  • Because of the nature of the event, the number of people we serve in a short time and the pop-up kitchen we use, we cannot accommodate any additional dietary requests on-site.
