Canada Day 2019 - Call for Performers

Call for Performers

The St. Catharines Museum & Welland Canals Centre is looking for three groups of performers to headline our Canada Day celebrations on July 1, 2019. The groups will present a cultural performance (music, dance, or other artistic expression) to the public as part of the festivities. Though the Museum is flexible in its expectations, we request the performance be between 20-40 minutes in length. We are looking to work with three different groups, with performances at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2 p.m. The St. Catharines Museum welcomes more than 500 visitors on Canada Day.

An honourarium will be awarded to participating cultural organizations.

Please contact Sara Nixon, Public Programmer, for more details, at or call 905.688.5601, ext. 5252. Thank you!
