Techapalooza is a concert event that brings together 5 to 7 bands bands comprised of talented musicians who work in the I.T. sector
Saturday, Feb. 22, 2020, Club Regent Event Centre

Since 2012, Techapalooza has raised over $580,000 for CancerCare Manitoba

Announcing a new day and new venue for Techapalooza 2020!
Techapalooza is moving to a new night: Saturday, February 22nd, 2020, and we are moving to a new venue: Club Regent Event Centre.

This introduces us to an event centre that regularly showcases professional entertainment for Winnipeggers. Our audience will enjoy the dance floor and table seating as before, but the larger space gives us theatre seating and capacity for a larger crowd. The bands will perform on a professional stage with easier setup and excellent acoustics. Take advantage of free indoor parking, free coat check and reduced rate hotel rooms. More about parking and hotel or room accommodations will be available on the Techapalooza website.

When did this all start?
When Techapalooza was first held in 2012, we had a sell-out crowd of 300 and raised $25,000 for CCMF. Techapalooza 2019, held on March 1st 2019, was a great success as our 8th annual event. We enjoyed 7 band performances, and we raised $100,000 for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. Thanks to our I.T. sponsors and ‘groupie’ fundraising, we broke our annual record of funds raised. This brings our eight year total to over $580,000.
