The Whiteout Street Party is the place to be to cheer on the Jets. Given the huge anticipated demand, we are implementing a free ticket policy.
To ensure the site remains safe, secure, and enjoyable for everyone, True North, along with Economic Development Winnipeg and the City of Winnipeg, has made the decision to issue tickets online. The maximum crowd capacity for the licensed area of the street party will be approximately 27,000, which includes the family area at the Millennium Library. Having a pre-determined street party capacity, achieved through ticketing, allows organizers to eliminate the variables of larger-than-expected crowds and to assess more accurately the necessary resources required to keep the street party a safe and enjoyable experience for all fans.
Where: Donald Street and Smith Street, between Portage Avenue and St. Mary Avenue, as well as Graham Avenue, between Garry Street and Smith Street. Refer to the map below for entrances and exits to the Street Party
