The City of Kitchener proudly presents Neighbours Day, an annual event dedicated to building community pride and neighbourhood spirit through live music, summer fun, and social activities. This year, Neighbours Day will be held on Saturday, June 15 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. in neighbourhoods across the city.

The City of Kitchener is currently accepting applications for up to 50 local musicians or bands to perform live and help us celebrate Neighbours Day. From porches to driveways, front lawns to street parties, local musicians will share their unique talents through outdoor pop-up concerts hosted by residents in their neighbourhoods.

Each musician will perform two pop-up concerts at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., or 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Neighbours Day organizers will assign performers to the concert locations and each concert will be approximately one hour. Performances can be acoustic or amplified and the musicians must provide their own equipment and transportation. Performers will receive an honourarium from the City for their time and travel.
