#WPGWhiteout Street Parties ready for takeoff

WINNIPEG, MB – The 2019 #WPGWhiteout Street Parties presented by Tim Hortons are ready to kick off this week, and ready to welcome thousands of fans to the streets of downtown Winnipeg to celebrate their hockey team and their city.

With the Stanley Cup Playoffs schedule now confirmed, the following times have been confirmed for the first two Street Parties:

Tickets for the first two (2) home games of the Stanley Cup Playoffs First Round 2019 #WPGWhiteout Street Party presented by Tim Hortons are now on sale at winnipegjets.com/tickets. Individual tickets are $5 each, and there is a limit of four (4) tickets per person for each game. Tickets for future First Round games, if necessary, will be made available once games are confirmed. 

Organizers for the #WPGWhiteout Street Parties also announced funding support from the Government of Manitoba. The province is providing up to $400,000 in additional funding for Travel Manitoba to support the Street Parties, in amounts of $100,000 per Stanley Cup Playoffs round. The funds will contribute towards providing a safe venue to celebrate the success of the Winnipeg Jets, while promoting both the city and province to a global audience.

This year, the #WPGWhiteout Street Parties have partnered with United Way Winnipeg, who will allocate 100% of ticket proceeds directly to agencies working in the city. The agencies who will receive funding from United Way Winnipeg have been selected around three key issues important to our community, all of which particularly impact Winnipeg’s downtown: addictions, mental health, and homelessness.
