Parks Alive! hires performers of all genres, styles and talent for our summer entertainment season. As a community-focused program that presents free concerts, our performers receive an honorarium determined by such factors as the number of performers in a group, their experience level, and our budget for the event.

All performances must be family-friendly (i.e. content must be suitable for live, public performance for all ages).

Our events are developed around musical themes, so performers are generally selected to "fit" within the chosen genres where possible. As you can appreciate, some themes "fill up" quickly but if you don't get your first performance preference there will be other opportunities that may fit.

Performer applications are accepted year round, however Parks Alive! staff do not book our performers until usually mid-May. If you'd like to be considered for a performance, please Download an application here.
