Fighting For Your Right to Party at RightsFest

September 21, 2014 12:12 PM | Entertainment

Opening weekend of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights continued on Saturday with RightsFest at The Forks.

Light drizzle didn’t deter concert-goers from coming out to take in free concerts and other festivities on the south side of the museum.

Canadian music legends Bruce Cockburn and Buffy Sainte-Marie performed, as well as Ashley MacIsaac, Marie-Pierre Arthur and Shad.

The concert was broadcast live across Canada and wraps up today at 4 p.m. Highlighting acts include the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Manitoba Opera, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Winnipeg Poetry Slam and Oh My Darling, plus a special guest presentation by Peace Days in celebration of UN International Day of Peace.
