Welcome to the Exchange District

Arts and cultural district in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. Restaurants, galleries, boutique shopping and so much more.

Bring the Exchange District to Sunday Dinner

One part meal kit, one part cooking show, one part virtual class— 100% Exchange District.

The Exchange District Cooking Club is a virtual cooking show/cooking class series where you get to learn how to prepare some of the Exchange District’s favourite dishes. Volume One kicks off on Sunday, January 17th.

Independent. Local. Historic.

Walk outdoors from shop to shop for your curb-side pickup and grab a hot beverage or a bite to-go.

The Exchange District is Winnipeg’s premier local and independent holiday shopping destination. In a holiday season like no other, we’re making it simple for you to discover what’s in store from our more than 40 one-of-a-kind local retailers.
