We help run CaRaVaN OPEN MIC + OPEN STAGE, a long-running “anything goes” open mic that takes place every Monday night at 7:00 PM.

CaRaVaN is indoors at X-Cues Café & Lounge (551 Sargent Ave.) for the fall, winter, and early spring! Come join us every Monday night (with some holiday exceptions where we will go virtual on Instagram Live) for live local talent, tasty food, great drinks, and community. Sign up is at 6:30, with the show running from 7-9:30 PM.

From May 15 through September 18, we’ll be back out at the Cube at Old Market Square! More info on our summer in the Exchange to come soon.

The Purple Room produces events and stages throughout the city, most frequently at Assiniboia Downs for the long-running MANITOBA NIGHT MARKET & FESTIVAL (June 11, July 23, & August 27), the MB FOOD TRUCK BATTLES (May 27 & 28), and a special CANADA DAY FIREWORKS & FESTIVAL (with an out-of-town headliner).

Pants on Fire: A Comedy Game Show

We also co-produce PANTS ON FIRE, a comedy game show pitting teams of comedians against each other in a battle of truth and deception. It’s on a hiatus right now, but will be back in the future!
