What is Alberta Showcase?

Alberta Showcasee | October 21-23, 2016

Performing artists need live audiences.

Presenters need artists for their audiences. Presenters do not always have the opportunity to see artists from other parts of the province or the country.

That’s where Alberta Showcase comes in.

Each year Alberta Showcase brings together presenters, performers and promoters for one jam-packed weekend of live performance, networking, and professional development. This explosive event allows presenters and promoters to see performances before they book the artists.

Over 40 artists will perform excerpts of their best work in a variety of settings throughout the weekend. You will have the opportunity to meet artists in our Contact Room, a trade fair where the business of the art happens.

Come join us for a weekend that will fuel your excitement for the performing arts in Alberta.

Register for Showcase 2016

Deadline for registration: Friday, April 1, 2016 at 11:59 PM MST


The Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta presents OnStage, a program offering professional feedback to artists who are interested in touring dates in Alberta.

OnStage 2016

OnStage sessions will be held:

  • Calgary | Sunday, March 13, 2016
    Festival Hall
    1215 10 Ave. SE | Calgary, AB | Map

  • Edmonton | Sunday, March 20, 2016
    Location TBA

OnStage gives musicians, singers, and performing groups an opportunity to meet with a panel of professional musicians and community presenters who are all familiar with Alberta Showcase.

Artists present a 12-minute showcase, then get 30 minutes of one-on-one feedback. If you are applying for Alberta Showcase it is advisable to do the spot you are proposing.

The panel will react to the performance, critique promotional materials, and can also recommend future directions for artists.

Space at OnStage is limited. Email with expressions of interest.
