MEET OUR PARTNERS: The Park Theatre

We’ve partnered with some of Winnipeg’s best local joints for our Shop Local, Earn Credit campaign…and we want you to meet them!

We caught up with Erick Casselman, Manager at The Park Theatre, to ask him about upcoming shows and the importance of putting your money where your mouth is:

Tell us about some upcoming shows that Winnipeggers shouldn’t miss.

Erick: Two shows I really want to emphasize are Hollerado, November 23rd, playing with the Zolas and PUP, and Twin Forks on November 20th.  Both these shows are going to be fantastic.  And looking into December, we are about to Launch our New Years Campaign, which is going to be killer.  Big Shiny ’90s. We will have Paul Langlois of the Tragically Hip here for an intimate concert on December 4th.  Killer show.

Why is shopping locally in Winnipeg important to you?DSC_0390

Erick: You get to make your own decisions and not decisions that a corporation has decided for you.  But it is also important to shop locally to support local artisans and products that are environmentally sustainable.  The more we shop local, the more we support our local economy through wages and jobs. Which, in turn, are spent locally, allowing for a more sustainable community.

 How did The Park come to establish itself as one of Winnipeg’s leading sound venues?

Erick: As for how, in less then 6 years, we have become one of the best music venues around…  I have no idea.  But I know how to persevere. I am not an expert by any stretch, but I listen to what people want. And… don’t stay still, always be reinventing yourself and your company.  It does not mean you have to start doing something completely different, but don’t get stuck in a rut either.
