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.

After pandemic-related closures caused the iconic Cube stage at Old Market Square to not open for 2020 or 2021, CaRaVaN Open Mic + Open Stage returns to our summer home in the Exchange District under the sun and stars. CaRaVaN at the Cube will run every Monday from May 23 through September 19 (except July 18 during the Winnipeg Fringe).

Presented by The Purple Room, The Exchange District BIZ, and The Park Theatre. Supported by X-Cues Café & Lounge and diningwithdonald.com.

The Purple Room produces events and stages throughout the city, most frequently at Assiniboia Downs for the long-running MANITOBA NIGHT MARKET & FESTIVAL (June 12, July 24, & August 28), the brand new MB FOOD TRUCK BATTLES (May 28 & 29), and a special CANADA DAY FIREWORKS & FESTIVAL (headlined by JUNO-Award Winner Hawksley Workman).


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 pandemic-induced hiatus right now, but will be back in the future!
