FAQs

What is the schedule of shows?

Please check back in June 2019 for Schedule information.

What do you look for in selecting your small halls and how can we submit our Small Hall to be considered for 2019?

We look for small halls with history and charm, that are located east of Peterborough and west of the ON/QC border. As of 2019, halls must have a capacity of over 200. Another careful consideration in our selection process is the organization who we will partner with on the concert at the hall. The Host Organization should be community-led with a core volunteer base.  In exchange for hosting us in your small hall, Hosts are given a percentage of ticket proceeds from their show and keep all revenues associated with intermission sales, alcohol sales, raffles, dinners, and more. Please submit by following this link: Small Halls Submissions 2019
