The City of Thunder Bay is inviting performing artists, food vendors, product & service vendors, artists/artisans, and community groups to apply to participate in the City’s annual events series.

In response to Provincial orders and physical distancing mandates, it is anticipated that the City’s summer programming will look different than previous years.  With public safety being the top priority, events staff are planning innovative ways of delivering events without encouraging the large gatherings that typically occur with events of this scale.

As the City events team continues to plan for various scenarios dependent on the Ontario Government regulations in place at the time of the event, opportunities have the potential for both virtual programming and smaller scale in-person programming. Despite current uncertainties in the actual scale and format of summer events, the calls for talent, vendors, artists/artisans and community groups will help determine their interest and type of participation in events this summer.

All applications are due by 4 pm on Friday, Feb. 26 and must be emailed to For more information and to apply, visit our Events page.
