About Us

15 Years of Fun

Each year on the third weekend of June, Summer in the City celebrates the diverse heritage and culture of Southeastern Manitoba through arts, entertainment, and food.

Established by founding partners the Steinbach Arts Council, AM 1250, Mix 96, Country 107, the City of Steinbach, and the Government of Canada in 2008, Summer in the City was immediately recognized as an opportunity to connect a community of unique groups and individuals through art, music, and shared experiences.

Today Summer in the City is one of the region’s leading attractions, with big-name performers hitting the Mainstage, and populating its many other stages (Street Arts, Cultures, Worship) with local talent for three full days.

It’s also a vital community gathering space, providing a variety of physically and financially accessible activities. With free admission and kid’s activities, and accessible parking downtown, Summer in the City is a low-barrier festival that invites everyone to experience the very best the Southeast has to offer.

Board of Directors

The Summer in the City Board of Directors is a key mix of people with skills relating to all aspects of the festival – food handling, business administration, and organizational management. While their skill sets are varied, complementary, and diverse, they are all passionate about community, showcasing the very best the Southeast has to offer, and celebrating our region’s history AND our future.

Taken together, our board values equality, inclusion, and diversity, and cares deeply about southeastern Manitoba.
