KR Barkman Concerts in the park – artist call out

The Steinbach Arts Council is once again looking for artists to share their talents with the community at the 2024 KR Barkman Concerts in the Park. This free outdoor concert series will take place in May and June at the KR Barkman Park gazebo on Main Street. Applications are open to bands, soloists, dancers, choirs, and artists of all kinds – if you’re looking to share your artistry, this is a great opportunity for you!

Local musical and theatrical performers are invited to apply to perform in one of the city’s most beautiful outdoor venues and build your summer audience. Visual Artists are invited to showcase their artworks and create on site during these concerts in the park. Share your creations and be inspired by live music and the energy of the audience. All Artists may sell their merchandise in the park during the show.

Tara Schellenberg, Performing Arts Coordinator, explains why these concerts are a highlight each spring. “It’s always a joy to have our community coming together to share their love of music and art. The KR Barkman Park is a beautiful, welcoming space for us to come together and enjoy the talent we have in our region!”

The Steinbach Arts Council is delighted to partner with the Barkman Concrete Foundation to continue this summer tradition of featuring local and guest artists and bringing our community together in celebration of music and arts.

We are pleased to offer this concert series free of charge for the public. The Steinbach Arts Council will provide the venue, pay the park rental and electricity cost, assist with a sound system and technician, and provide marketing and promotions.

Concerts run Tuesdays and Thursdays from May 23rd to June 13th, with a detailed date list available on our website. Fill out your preferred dates on the application form – first come, first served! Visit to apply. Applications close April 15, 2024.
