OpenStage is a free arts cafe for artists of all ages to venture. Unlike your conventional indoor cafes, OpenStage actually takes place in the middle of beautiful Queens Park in New Westminster, under the shelter of the band shell. OpenStage is duly named because its audience sits onstage along with the performers, making the park the new backdrop of the stage and creating a much more intimate and inviting living room style setting.
The overall programming for each night will be:
7:30pm - Cafe is open!
7:45pm - Open mic begins (30-40mins) with 1 song per performer
8:15pm - Feature performer show (30-50 mins)
9:00pm - Floor is open for more open mic artists
