SATE to Headline 2018 Pride Winnipeg Festival Main Stage

Pride Winnipeg Festival is excited to announce that SATE will headline the main stage at the Festival at the Forks for this year’s festival. The Toronto vocalist and songwriter leads a dynamic band combining blistering hard rock with gritty funk. The empowering messages embedded in her music, and her soul-shaking live show, have quickly built SATE’s reputation as an artist impossible to ignore. Even Canada’s national daily newspaper, the Globe & Mail, declared her full-length debut album, RedBlack&Blue one of 2016’s most anticipated releases.

This year’s Festival at the Forks will feature several changes including location changes for the PrideMART and Blue Bombers KidZone, consolidating all concessionaries into one food village, and the creation of a new Health and Wellness Area and designated substance free zone. Festival attendees are also encouraged to check out the Sky Lounge at the top of the parkade for a beautiful view of the festival and a calm space to hang out. Assistance will be provided to individuals with mobility challenges. In addition, Saturday June 2nd the Festival at the Forks will play host to the Second Annual Two Spirit Pow Wow taking place from 1:30pm – 8:00pm.

The Pride Festival at The Forks begins on the last Saturday of the celebrations and runs on the following Sunday (Pride Day). The Pride Festival at The Forks occurs on the adjacent lawns of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and consists of an array of on-stage entertainment, artisans, vendors, The Winnipeg Blue Bombers Kidzone, Manitoba Liquor Mart Sky Lounge, and Queer Beer Beverage Tent. This event draws the largest crowd during the Pride Winnipeg Festival with attendance peaking on Pride Day after the Pride parade.

This year’s Festival at the Forks will take place on June 2nd and 3rd from 12:00pm – 7:00pm. For more information on the Festival at the Forks please go to www.pridewinnipeg.com/pride/festival-at-the-forks.
