Winterfest was more successful then we could have anticipated. Thank you to all of our hard working volunteers, vendors, artists, panellists, attendees, DJ Frankie Hollywood and the amazing staff at The Delta Winnipeg Hotel! Without you all, this event would have not been possible!

We are sorry to those who we had to turn away that were unable to to get in. We sold out within a couple of hours and that is a first in Winterfest history! We recommend pre-registering in the future, to avoid being turned away at the door.

We appreciate each and every one of our attendees and hope to see you at Ai-Kon 2015 on July 17-19th at The Winnipeg Convention Centre! We guarantee our main event will have plenty of space!

Thank you again to everyone who made it out and helped make this event so successful! Keep your eyes open for announcements in the near future!
