History and Venue Photos
Originally built as a church, the building at 783 Mountain Avenue took on a new life when the Winkler Mennonite Church congregation decided to build a new and larger facility. At the time, the city council of Winkler saw an opportunity to develop a performing arts centre. 2006 brought the official opening of the venue, in Winkler's centennial year. In June of that year the PW Enns Centennial Concert Hall was officially opened and named not only after Winkler's anniversary but also for one of its most famous citizens. PW Enns was the founder of Triple E Canada in the mid 1960's.
The Concert Hall has been host to many talented musicians and artists over the years including The Irish Rovers, Darcy Oake, Mariana's Trench, Chantal Kreviazuk, Emerson Drive, Frank Mills, Faber Drive, George Canyon, The Oak Ridge Boys, Doc Walker, Down with Webster, Mark Chesnutt and Terri Clark.
