The Purple Room has been involved with producing the music at live events every summer at Assiniboia Downs for several years. As the number of events grow, and interest from local performers grows with it, we’re now asking interested performers to fill out this application form.

With 2 days of the MB Food Truck Battles, 3 separate Manitoba Night Markets, and the Canada Day Fireworks & Festival, we have lots of opportunities to perform. Compensation for performers begins at $200 per set, and all performers also receive food & drinks.

Applications are now closed for 2023.

We thank all those who submitted applications, and are still reaching out to artists for our 3 Manitoba Night Markets. If we don’t end up contacting you for 2023, please get in touch again for 2024! We like to rotate through artists year-to-year, and loved hearing from new artists we hadn’t encountered before.
