Dear Powell Street Festival Performance Applicants,

We are very excited to be celebrating the 42nd Annual Powell Street Festival on Saturday, August 4th, and Sunday, August 5th, 2018!

As always, performance times and time slots are very limited, so please return the form to us as soon as possible.

The final deadline for applications is Friday, March 9, 2018. If you submitted an application last year, please log in to your account and your content will appear in each field. However, it is important that you review and update each answer because the questions may have changed.

We do our best to accommodate as many community applicants as possible. However, due to increased demand for time-slots, not all applicants can be guaranteed a spot. All new community performers and all professional performers please include a DVD, CD-R or URL (YouTube, Vimeo etc.) or website link that includes a recording of your theatrical, musical, or dance performance. Please ensure that your video file can be accessed with one of the following plug-ins: QuickTime, RealPlayer, Shockwave, or Windows Media Player.

We also encourage you to join our volunteer set-up crew on Friday, August 3rd, 2018. Our Volunteer Coordinator will reach out to you in July.

If you have any questions or require further information, please feel free to contact us at 604.739.9388. Your continued support of the Festival is greatly appreciated!

Best wishes,
Leanne Dunic, Artistic Director
