Get Involved

Become a Volunteer

“I’ve never felt more at home in a city before.”

This is from one of our volunteers at the end of another exhilarating festival weekend. Volunteering with Summer in the City is a fantastic way to get to know your community! (And enjoy perks like access to the Volunteer Lounge stocked with snacks.)

We are so thankful for our volunteers. Summer in the City is better because of people who share their skills, abilities, and time to make this event so good. What do you love to do? We need volunteers in many different areas of our festival! Tell us what you’re good at, and we’ll find your best fit.

Become a Sponsor

Together, we make our community stronger, more vibrant, and something to truly celebrate!

Showcase your business at one of Southeastern Manitoba’s leading attractions. Get your business name and logo in front of thousands of festivalgoers who are discovering the best the Southeast has to offer — including YOUR business.

Elevate the experience for everyone — join Summer in the City as a sponsor!

Become a Vendor

You don’t have to look far to find your next new LOCAL favourite at Summer in the City because we showcase LOCAL! Local talent, local artisans, local businesses… like yours!

We’re accepting vendor applications until April 15th.

Showcase Your Art

All weekend long, Artists in the City lets festivalgoers see artists (like you!) in action! It’s an amazing interactive opportunity to exhibit – and sell! – your art right here in the midst of our bustling local summer festival! Whether you’re demonstrating your art, teaching classes in our Artists in the City tent, showcasing your art, or simply selling your wares – this is a must for all established and up-and-coming artists!

We’re accepting artist applications until April 26th.

Become a Performer

Applications for 2024 performers are now closed. Check back January 2025 to apply for next year’s festival!
Cultural performance

Cultures Stage

All Weekend at the West End of the Festival

Local culture in the Southeast means MANY cultures! And we’re celebrating all of them, all weekend long, on the Cultures in the City stage at the west end of the festival. One of the busiest, most popular parts of Summer in the City, performers will enjoy a crowd that’s always ready to learn… and dance!



Patio Party Friday and Saturday Afternoons

Show the Southeast what you’ve got! We’re inviting local bands and performing artists to hit the Mainstage during our Summer in the City Patio Parties, Friday and Saturday afternoons.


Worship in the City

Sunday Afternoon Mainstage

The community comes together for a collective worship service in the morning, and the feeling continues long after the service concludes. As the midway gets up and running for the final day of the festival, worship-forward artists take the Worship in the City stage at the Mainstage.

Become a Board Member

Our Board of Directors is filled with community-minded folks who are passionate about bringing this successful festival to the Southeast each year.

“We share opinions, listen to each other, disagree well – and we all care about each other in the end.”
“There isn’t any better way to really get to know the region and the people.”
“We’re here to elevate the experience for everyone!”

If you say yes to one of these:

  • Know what it’s like to own and run a business.
  • Have a food handling background.
  • Represent one of our region’s many diverse people groups.

And say yes to both of these:

  • Care about community, about showcasing our region.
  • Value equality, inclusion, and diversity.

We would love to hear from you!
