The Whiteout parties will return to the streets of down town Winnipeg with the start of the NHL playoffs! The Whiteout Street parties are presented by Crown Royal and will be taking place on Donald Street to celebrate the Jets playoff run.
“Our fans have made the Street Parties part of the Winnipeg Whiteout legacy. We are thrilled to again play a part in providing a community gathering spot for fans to share their passion and excitement for our Winnipeg Jets, and celebrate their pride in our city,” said Kevin Donnelly, True North’s Sr. Vice President, Venues & Entertainment.
The Whiteout Parties will be taking place before and during the Winnipeg Jets home playoff games. The dates for the home playoff games and Whiteout Parties will be announced in the near future. The parties will be held between Portage Ave. and Dale Hawerchuk way( Graham ave.) next to Canada Life Centre.
The Gates will open two hours before puck drop  with a fun entertaining and safe environment for 5,000 fans as we all cheer on the Jets in the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Tickets for the Whiteout will be just $10 with half of the ticket price being reinvested into the community through United Way Winnipeg to agencies whose work is centered around supporting those in our city experiencing homelessness, addictions and mental health challenges.
The Manitoba government will also provide $75,000 in funding per playoff round to support the parties. Additionally, he City of Winnipeg and Economic Development Winnipeg will allocate $50,000 from the Special Event Tourism Fund to deliver an enhanced production.
Three large screens will broadcast the Jets games throughout the Street Party footprint with additional entertainment, including guests hosts and DJs adding to the energy and atmosphere. Food and beverages will be available for purchase on site from a variety of food trucks and concession stands. The Winnipeg Jets Promo Team will be on site with prizes and giveaways, and fans can pick up Whiteout merchandise at the Jets Gear kiosk.
Fans attending playoff games at Canada Life Centre can use their gameday ticket to access the Winnipeg Whiteout Street Parties; a separate ticket will not be needed to access the Street Partybefore entering Canada Life Centre.
A site map and more information about Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party services and amenities is available at wpgwhiteoutstreetparty.ca.
