Alberta Showcase 2018 - Showcase Opportunity

October 18-21, 2018 in Fort Saskatchewan, AB

Deadline: April 1, 2018

Now in its 41st year, Alberta Showcase brings touring artists together with community presenters searching for artists for special events, concert and performance series, and community celebrations. It is three days of showcasing the top performance artists interested in touring Alberta, that will inspire you!

Every October the Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta brings together presenters from across Alberta who are searching for performing artists who will tour in their communities. Many of the soft-seat presenters offer subscription series. Some are simply cafes with one off concerts and events. They are looking for a diverse, challenging line-up of artists with broad audience appeal. Alberta Showcase 2017 will take place October 18-21 at the Shell Theatre in the Dow Centennial Centre in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta (just 30 minutes north of Edmonton). All applications are reviewed by a jury of presenters, performers, and promoters, and the top applicants are selected to showcase over the weekend.

Each year Alberta Showcase brings together presenters, performers, and promoters for one jam-packed weekend of live performances. This explosive event allows presenters and promoters to see performances before they book the artists. Over 40 artists will perform their best work in a 15 minute showcase throughout the weekend. Alberta Showcase also allows musicians the exciting and effective opportunity to perform for an entire provincial presenting network at once.
