Winnipeg Jets Playoff Celebrations

The Winnipeg Jets playoff run starts today, and so do the Winnipeg Whiteout Street Parties. Celebrations are expected to draw significant crowds to the downtown area on game days; the key area being Donald Street between Portage Avenue and St. Mary Avenue.

The goal of the Winnipeg Police Service is to ensure a safe environment for everyone looking to enjoy the celebrations. We will have additional officers and resources deployed on game days and Winnipeggers can expect to see an increased police presence before and after the games.

We are asking citizens to keep the following the mind:

  • Less is more. Security will be restricting access on large bags and backpacks. More information can be found at Winnipeg Whiteout
  • ­Designate a meeting place with family and friends before you arrive, especially if there are young children involved. Large crowds are expected, increasing the chances of becoming inadvertently separated from your group.
  • Parking will be at a premium in and around Bell MTS Place. Consider car-pooling with friends or family, walking or cycling, or taking public transit to help reduce congestion and delays.
  • Unless you are in a designated licensed area, open liquor is prohibited. Please drink responsibly
  • Reminder: Canada's cannabis laws prohibit smoke/use cannabis in your vehicle or in public, including sidewalks, parks, school grounds, & restaurants patios.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. If something doesn't look right flag down an officer and let them know, or call the police at 911 or (204) 986-6222.

With some advanced planning, we can all enjoy a fun, safe and memorable playoff run.

Go Jets Go!
