Juno week

I love a city-wide celebration, and Juno week starts now. Hundreds of Canadian artists are in Winnipeg performing at various venues across the city, culminating with the Juno Awards on March 30. Starting tonight, pick a venue and chances are you will see talented Canadians playing music for the other Canadians who quit their piano lessons after Grade 4. Also, hockey -- of course, the Juno Cup is included in the festivities. The worst part about this week will be making a decision. Visit for event information and tickets.



Math and art. Are they really so different? Well, I know I didn't need a tutor for art when I was in Grade 7. Math + Art, an ongoing exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery is a comparison of symmetry, shape, and pattern observed in prints, paintings and sculptures. You will encounter a series of interactive exhibits focusing on 20th century art and you won't need to carry the 1. On now until May 4. Visit for details.


Page turner

Strap on your bifocals and join the yack about yarns at the McNally Robinson Book Club, hosted by Joanne Kelly. Starting at 7 p.m. on the last Tuesday of every month, join the discussion about the current book or start on next month's book. Come for the free coffee, and chat up some books with Joanne -- who is no shushing librarian. Visit for more information and to see upcoming books.


Make the scène

Scène Manitobaine is a showcase of Franco-Manitoban music featuring new artists Justin Lacroix, Jocelyne Baribeau, Marijosée, Kasperzick and special guests Les Francossins. Doors open at 7 p.m. at The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre, 281 Donald St. Beards are not required for entry, but tickets are. Call 204-233-ALLO to get yours. Tickets are $5.

Classical rock

Big top for peewees

Start off spring break with some clowning, music, fun, and magic -- kind of sounds like a Red Hot Chili Peppers album. From March 29 to April 6, kids can join the circus during the 14th Annual Festival of Fools, on daily at The Forks. Face painting, games, and tricks, along with circus and trapeze workshops. You gotta pay for the parking, but the foolishness is FREE all week from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visit for information.
