Anyone reading my blogs knows that yours truly LOVES a good party. Whether it’s drinks on a patio, sunsets high up on a rooftop, or dancing all night at one of my fave downtown bars—let’s just say I like to make the most of my non-nine-to-five hours.
And for me, I’m never quite ready to go when the party ends, the musicians sing their last song, the bar makes last call and queues Patio Lanterns. Lucky for me—there’s a little wonderful thing called the After Party!
Next weekend, Interstellar Rodeo is coming to Winnipeg and hosting a weekend-long event at The Forks. There’s a whole big impressive line-up of artists and musicians like Wilco, Serena Ryder, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nights Sweats, The Strumbellas, and k.d. lang (HALLELUJAH!)—just to name a few.
And guess what.. there’s an after party! After Interstellar is the place to be for your post-festival celebrations on Saturday August 13 from 10pm to 2am. The after party will take place at the new Forks Market Food Hall with an evening full of wine tasting, food pairings and great music. Winnipeg Wine Cru will be hosting the event, and Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson is creating fancy wine pairings with each artist.
Local artists Duotang (got to love that name) and DJ Co-op will be entertaining party-goers into the wee hours of the night—so best bring your dancing shoes!
General admission is $50, or $40 if you’re an Interstellar weekend pass holder or Grand Cru Member. You can also use the coupon code, 16170WWC, to get a 20% discount! And sorry kids, the event is 18+. Find out more about After Interstellar tickets at: interstellarrodeo.com/Winnipeg/tickets.
