Rally in Innovation Alley


Tuesday, September 27 • 1:30 to 7:00 p.m.

Join us as we take to the streets to pitch, party and plan for Manitoba’s burgeoning entrepreneurial economy.

Be sure to be there at 2:00PM for the most transformative technology announcement in Winnipeg’s history, watch the Pitch Idol competition, step inside to see the Fabrication Lab, tour the Makers Market and Tech Company Showcase and sample offerings from the city’s finest food and beverage trucks.

Look for the action on the block between McDermot and Bannatyne.

Makers’ Market / Tech Showcase

Located on Adelaide Street between McDermot Ave and Bannatyne Ave, makers’ and tech startups can display and sell their products free of charge! Think of this like a farmers’ market on steroids! North Forge will supply the tent, one table, two chairs, and power. The block party will run from 1:00PM to 7:00PM. You can start setting up at 12:00PM. We are expecting at least 500 people to pass through the event. We will require a $100 deposit, which will be refunded to attendees within 3 business days following the event.
