The City of Red Deer is holding an open call for musical artists to provide entertainment at the Red Deer Arena Commemorative Celebration on Friday, April 8, 2016.

“This is a great opportunity for exposure in the community”, said Peter McGee, Special Events Programmer for The City of Red Deer. “We’re looking for a variety of genres to entertain guests of all ages as we celebrate an important piece of Red Deer’s history.”

Artists are encouraged to apply by completing a Call for Artists (pdf) package available at Culture Services or online at www.reddeer.ca/rdarena.

Submissions will be assessed on quality and originality of performance as well as audience interaction and engagement. This call is open to all, although preference will be given to residents of Red Deer and Red Deer County. Artists not included in the Red Deer Arena Commemorative Celebration will be considered for inclusion in The City of Red Deer’s Arts Directory and may be contacted for future opportunities.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 19, 2016 at 4:30 p.m.

More information on the event can be found at www.reddeer.ca/rdarena.
