Perform on the Farmers’ Market Sweet Beet Stage

Music can add a lot to the market scene. We are happy to have some of Calgary’s most talented musicians perform for you during market hours, whether we’re indoors or out. We’re also happy to provide a venue for those just starting out – there’s no need to be a professional.

Have a look at the calendar below and see if there’s a spot you’re available to fill. The Farmers’ Market operates indoors every Wednesday of the winter months and move outdoors around May long weekend. We ask that you choose a two-hour time slot, either 3-5pm, or 5-7pm.

When you have a date in mind, fill out the application form below with some basic information and the date and time you’d like to play. Our Music Coordinator will get back to you with confirmation and more information soon.
