This upcoming weekend is jam packed with family fun at the Forks!
Kidsfest is a whole lot more affordable for families this year! Patrons can now buy their advance tickets at any Winnipeg area Safeway location for just $13 each – a full dollar less than last year’s Safeway prices! Meanwhile, a 4FlexFest pass is just $45 (a reduction of three dollars from 2014).
Not only will there be lower ticket prices at Kidsfest, there will also be some exciting new initiatives brought to you by the Winnipeg International Children’s Festival this June 4-7, 2015.
