Manitoba Showcase is in a different city or town every year, and this year we’re coming to Winkler!

Winkler is Manitoba’s sixth-largest city and the second fastest growing city in the province.

All of our conference venues will be nice and close together. For the details, see this handy Conference Map!

Performances and Events: The P.W. Enns Concert Hall


The PW Enns Centennial Concert Hall has a unique history. Originally built as a church, the facility served as a place of worship for decades. When the Winkler Mennonite Church congregation decided to build a new and larger facility, the city council of Winkler saw an opportunity. After years of planning, designing and renovating, 2006 brought the official opening of the venue, in Winkler’s Centennial year. The PW Enns Centennial Concert Hall is named after Winkler’s anniversary and one of its most famous citizens. PW Enns was the founder of Triple E Canada, the only manufacturer of Class A motor homes in Canada!
