The province has declared 2014 as the Year of Music in Manitoba to showcase the many artists, music festivals and events that make Manitoba a great place to live, work and visit.
As part of Manitoba’s Year of Music and our commitment to increase flexibility for licensees, liquor licensees may apply for a special authorization to operate as live entertainment venues up to 12 times during 2014.
Licensees may apply anytime for events that run until the end of 2014. Contact us at 204-474-5619, toll-free at 1-888-898-6522, or email to apply.
Licensees who are granted the Year of Music authorization may operate under relaxed food service requirements when live music is being presented, up to 12 times between the time the authorization issued and December 31, 2014. There is no cost for this special authorization.
