We encourage everyone to visit our schedule event planning application. It’s the best way to discover great music and plan your festival day ahead of time. You can browse performances and search by time, artist or venue.

There are still plenty of openings for volunteers who can lend a couple of hours on festival day. We need Roving Festival Ambassadors, Equipment Wranglers,Photographers/Videographers and more. View all volunteer opportunities by clicking on the link below. You can easily choose when and how to be part of this fantastic free street music celebration. High school students can earn community service hours!


Organized by friends and hosted by neighbours, Open Tuning is a volunteer-run, community celebration of music. We remain committed to running without corporate sponsorship and rely entirely upon individual donations. By donating what you can, you help us offset costs for things like poster printing, park permits, and sound equipment rentals for the many neighbourhood stages. Please donate today!
