About the Event

Did you know that many of Winnipeg's "stone" buildings are made of clay?

Winnipeg’s terra cotta collection is large and essentially complete. It is an unparalleled sampling in North America of the variety, versatility and beauty of this material. Join us for a tour through Winnipeg's downtown to learn more about the history of terra cotta, of Winnipeg's history and to view this wonderful collection of terra cotta architecture.

Meet at 7pm at Pantages Playhouse Theatre, 180 Market Avenue.

The Winnipeg Architecture Foundation free tour, led by Gail Perry, will take about ninety minutes. The route will be wheelchair and stroller accessible.
