Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a maximum capacity for the Street Party?

Outside food and drinks will not be permitted – but there are some great food trucks and beverage options inside the venue for purchase.
Will I be allowed to smoke?
The Street Party site is a non-smoking venue. This includes e-cigarettes.
Will food be available for purchase?
Yes. There will be some food trucks at the Street Party so you can grab a bite before and during the game.

Yes - but there is an alcohol-free zone at the Millennium Library Park.
Are pets allowed?
We ask that you keep your furry friend at home (guidance animals are permitted on-site).
Will there be an accessible drop-off point if I have mobility impairments?
Yes. A drop-off point for accessible parking will be available in the loading zone in front of the Radisson Hotel (288 Portage Avenue) during the Street Party. There will be clearly marked signage during these times.

Where can I park my bike?
At this point we have not added additional bike parking, but there are a number of existing bike racks available at the Millennium Library and around BellMTS Place. As the event continues to grow, we will be exploring more bike parking options.
How will the party affect traffic downtown?
There will be some street closures and Transit reroutes around BellMTS Place. Details can be found here. It's a good idea to allow extra time to get around downtown. Winnipeg Transit has more information on affected routes. Download and use the Waze app for real-time traffic and incident updates as well as traffic re-route options.
Can I be part of the 50/50 draw going on inside BellMTS Place?
Yes! Fans have the opportunity to get in on the in-game 50/50 draw at the Street Party. 50/50 sellers will be roaming around the area – be sure to catch one for your chance to win!
Anything else I need to know?
Dress for the weather (whatever it might be that day). Of course, we encourage all fans to wear white for every game!
