Music & Market Square Thursdays at containR

Watch, shop, gather & listen with your neighbours in the open air

Calgary, AB - After the brilliant performances and joyous fans that celebrated the Lemon Bucket Orchestra and Delerium Street Band last year, containR is back in 2015 with a whole series of great musical performances and a market square where sunshine, great music and terrific local vendors are the recipe for fun this summer!

“The diverse programming is as colourful and illuminating as the people of Calgary, and this friendly urban experience welcomes all to join in the festivities,” said Nicole Mion, Springboard Performance’s Artistic Director and Curator.

Starting June 25th and running on select Thursdays from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., we are proud and excited to present great local music heavyweights, including:

  • June 25: WNBB Big Band Concert Jazz with Vocalists Mari Jo de Waal and Wendy Lomnes
  • July 16: Second Annual Stampede Hangover Picnic | Freak Motif and Danielle French
  • July 30: Latin Corner Salsa
  • Aug 6: Afrikaday! | Nya Soleil and Guests

Plus so much more! (Please see attached poster for more artists)

Music and Market Square will also feature a market of local micro- entrepreneurs, so come find something new, while you hear something blue or happy, and be a part of containR’s 100 mile creative diet!

Please visit our website for more information on artists and schedules. There is a Pay What You Can cover charge, with proceeds going directly to the artists.

containR is a temporary ‘pop-up’ venue and the goal in animating the site is to activate and inspire creative connections featuring collaborations between community and the arts. It is a community-lead initiative, a partnership between Springboard Performance and Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association. Both of these organizations are local not-for-profit charities.

Springboard Performance thanks our sponsors and partners for their support. More information on our website,
