Outtakes are defined as scenes that are not used in the final version of a movie or television show.
These photos from the past 12 months never saw the light of day on Community News Commons. But you might want to circle these days on your calendar now for these events and others this summer or next; many are free and most are driven by enthusiastic volunteers.
When there is no snow on the ground, Winnipeg gets busy.
WildWoodRose Vintage Market
At the WildWoodRose Vintage Market last June you could buy plenty of bric-a-brac: vintage, vintage-inspired, antique, up-cycled, re-purposed, steampunk.
“Lucy” was also on hand to clear your mental bric-a-brac.
This year, WildWoodRose at Old Market Square really brought out the crowds for dozens of vendors. Looks like it’s becoming an annual Winnipeg fixture.
Free if you keep your hands in your pockets.
Open Doors Winnipeg
Open Doors Winnipeg, organized by Heritage Winnipeg, has opened doors since 2004 and shows no sign of slowing down.
Winnipeggers check out history, architecture and culture-everything from chapels to bank vaults.
And it’s all free.
Winnipeg Folk Festival
July 7 to 10 the Winnipeg Folk Festival brings music from around the world and next door.
Never mind free-range chickens, this is a great place for free-range children.
Free for kids 12 and under.
First Fridays in the Exchange
Wayfinding 2015: Street Art Alley Party at Fleet Galleries saw the Albert St. gallery block their front door for a First Friday last summer and turned their side alley into a gallery.
Art, food and music with featured works by artists with disabilities. The event showcased the artists work but also brought awareness of the inaccessibility of the Winnipeg arts district.
The next First Friday is slated for Aug. 5, 2016. Who knows what you’ll find.
One thing is for sure: it’s free.
Islendingadagurinn / Icelandic Festival of Manitoba
At this year’s Icelandic Festival the Alternative Folk Festival is scheduled for 6 p.m. till midnight July 31 at Gimli Park in Gimli, MB.
Performers include Kristopher Ulrich, Raine Hamilton, Sweet Alibi, the Joey Landreth Trio, Begonia and The Chuck Copenace group.
You won’t break the bank: it’s free.
Culture Days is an annual national event to raise awareness and engage Canadians in the arts and culture in their communities.
Nuit Blanche, a celebration of contemporary art, is the night downtown Winnipeg crackles and hums. And the WAG is open all night.
For 2016, Culture Days are Sept. 30 – Oct. 2.
