There's plenty of music to see and hear when the Grey Cup rolls into Winnipeg this month. Kicking off November 25, the 103rd Grey Cup Festival takes over various city venues for five days of celebration, including concerts, a street festival, family-friendly events, and more.

Local breweries Farmery, Fort Garry, and Half Pints Brewing Co. have been tapped to provide beer for the fest. 

There's a big local music presence at the free, three-day Nissan Titan Street Festival, which runs Nov 26-28 at the University of Winnipeg on two stages.

The Main Stage inside the Duckworth Centre will feature live music, including sets from Cash Grab, The Solutions, Edmonton's The Wet Secrets, a Novillero reunion, Dirty Catfish Brass Band, and more.
