Calling all Street Performers, Musicians, and Performing Artists! Evergreen Cultural Centre is delighted to announce our brand new Open Air Performance Series, a summer-long series of live performances created to expand our arts programming outside our usual performance spaces and into Town Centre Park and Lafarge Lake. 

From July 10 – September 01, 2023, our Open Air Series will offer free, 1 hour performances from Monday to Friday at 12pm. All performances will take place in a designated, outdoor area near Evergreen, and all artists will be paid for their time and promoted across our in-person and digital platforms.

In doing so, we hope this new series will support Evergreen’s goals of developing new relationships with Lafarge Lake lovers and passersby while serving our community by providing free, professional arts programming. So get your picnic baskets ready and come join us for a show!

Applications Now Open – Apply Today!

Applications to the series are now open! All Instructions and details on how to apply are available on our online application form. We welcome and encourage artists, musicians, and street performers of all backgrounds, disciplines, and lived experiences to apply.
