Whether it’s the Shred in the City skateboarding competition, Heat the Streetz dance battle, or graffiti artists – this is a BIG part of the reason Main Street is so full at Summer in the City! Hosted by Boss Dance Academy.

Artists in the City

Painting, creating, sculpting, designing… artists are at work on Main Street all weekend long and they WANT to be interrupted! Watch art being created, create your own piece, or purchase a new piece for your collection. Demonstrations, classes, sales… this is a must stop on your SITC itinerary! Hosted by Steinbach Arts Council.

A family favourite on Main Street – Kids in the City offers FREE fun all weekend long. Crafts, mini golf, a foam party, magic show – all the things for all the kids! With painted faces and armed with balloon animals, your kids won’t run out of things to keep them entertained.

This is also where you’ll find the Family Tent – a quiet space to feed babies, change diapers, and let your little ones decompress for a few moments. Hosted by Steinbach Family Resource Centre.

Sports in the City

Stay fit… AND have fun! Sign up with friends or family, kids ages six and up can spend the weekend playing ball hockey (Sticks in the City), basketball (Hoops in the City), and beach volleyball (Spike in the City). Get in on the action! Watch for registration beginning in May.
