2024/2025 Season of Shine

Welcome to our 2024/25 season!

In this season of shine, embrace the golden hour with a sense of curiosity and wonder. Allow yourself to be drawn into the rays of the warm known.

This year, our annual containR Fest will run from June 20th to June 23rd and June 27 to July 1st.

containR shines bright this summer with unique summer arts experiences

Each summer, artists, performers, musicians, craftspeople converge at the containR Fest to serve up an extraordinary summer arts festival experience. It’s all aimed at promoting community diversity and shining a light on artists, organisations, and communities through vibrant events.

containR Fest dreams a world where performance is part of life; where performance and creation are an integral part of our connection to each other, our land, our stories, our past, present and future.

This year we feature circus and comedy by Montreal's La Famille GoldenCrust co-presented with Green Fools, JUNO-nominated vocalist, pianist, and composer, Joanna Borromeo a cherished treasure in Calgary's soul and jazz music scene, co-presented with JazzYYC, a spontaneous comedy theatre adventure with Calgary's Kinkornauts and Loose Moose Theatre, the indelible Audrey Lane Crocket and creative collaborators with an evening of poetry, jazz and hip hop expressions, a Drag Musical Matinee Picnic co-presented with Fake Mustache, and the inaugural CariFest Kiddies Carnival celebrating caribbean culture specifically for kids and families by Calgary's beloved CarFest. 

Join us for unique summer performances, experiences, and events where art and community shine bright.
