Throat singer Tanya Tagaq closes tonight’s show with a performance at 9:30 p.m.

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 2/8/2017 (1107 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Beat the heat and avoid the rain – but not the humidity – by taking in the diving at the Pan Am Pool. Springboard diving for both females and males begins at 10 a.m.

At The Forks main stage, award-winning throat singer Tanya Tagaq will perform at 9:30 p.m. The singer from Nunavut is a Juno and Polaris Music Prize winner and will be headlining the evening’s musical performances.

For those interested in something a bit different, the satellite stage will be hosting the National Film Board of Canada short film Northern Territories at 7:45 p.m.

Also down at The Forks will be the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Art Express’d project, offering up free art-making workshops in a six-metre shipping container which has been redesigned into an art studio. The workshops will run from 4 to 8 p.m. at Park Canada Place at The Forks.
