Volunteers make Techapalooza happen; the organizing committee, band members, judges and everyone else that helps with fund-raising are ALL volunteers.


Techapalooza is a concert event that brings together 5 bands comprised of talented musicians who work in the I.T. sector
Since 2012, Techapalooza has raised over $460,000 for CancerCare Manitoba

The bands will perform in front of an enthusiastic crowd who will vote for their favorite band to be crowned “Fan Favourite”. Meanwhile, 3 celebrity judges will critique the band’s performances and select the “Judges Choice”…and while rockin’ the night away, we’ll be raising money for the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.


When Techapalooza was first held in 2012, we had a sell-out crowd of 300 and raised $25,000 for CCMF. In 2014 we moved the event to the Hotel Fort Garry where it has been held since then. Last year we raised an amazing $90,000 and to date we have reached over $460,000.
