The 17th Annual Collingwood Music Showcase is open to all ages and runs from (May 18-21) at CASBAH Bar. This 4 day music and dance event is a fundraiser, with all proceeds donated to the Optimist Club of Collingwood. This is an event that brings together a wealth of musicians and performers from Collingwood and surrounding area’s vibrant music scene! We feature some of the areas most successful acts, along with some of the regions best undiscovered talent.

Seasoned pros to first-time performers, from all across the musical spectrum, join forces to create an incredible line up of entertainment for music fans of all types and ages. Each year we have over 235 entertainers who volunteer their time and talent to this event.

The Optimist Club of Collingwood are well known for their work with youth and help provide funds for grade schools to purchase musical instruments.
