WAG Celebrates Holiday Season with Free Party for Families

Winnipeg, Manitoba, November 24, 2016: The Winnipeg Art Gallery is gearing up for its annual Holiday Party on Sunday, December 4. This festive event is a free, fun-filled afternoon for the whole family, running from 1:30 to 4pm. Visitors are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to Winnipeg Harvest.

With a host of games, music, hot chocolate, and cookies, the WAG elves will be on hand to help visitors create their own artful holiday decorations and cards. Back this year is Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s Filbert the Bear, the lovable mascot from Nutcracker. There will also be a chance to see Filbert in action by winning free tickets to this year’s production of Nutcracker.

“The WAG’s Holiday Party is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with your family in a festive atmosphere,” says Rachel Baerg, WAG Head of Education. “We invite the community to make this joyful event part of their family’s holiday tradition.”

Visitors can get a little holiday shopping done, too. Gallery Shop features a fabulous selection of handmade gifts for the whole family, while a WAG Gift Membership fits into everyone’s stocking. 

The WAG’s Holiday Party would not be possible without the generous support of Stella’s Catering, Sweet Impressions, Ron Paul Garden Centre, Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and media sponsor the Winnipeg Free Press.
