What is Techapalooza?
This concert event brings together 5 to 7 bands comprised of talented musicians who work in the I.T. sector. Bands perform for an enthusiastic crowd that votes for their favourite band to be crowned “Fan Favourite.” …all while rockin’ the night away to raise money for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation (CCMF).
When did this all start?
When Techapalooza was first held in 2012, we had a sell-out crowd of over 300 and raised $25,000 for CCMF. Due to the global pandemic, Techapalooza 2021, was held online in a March Madness style bracket tournament! Bands had their favourite 2020 tracks pitted against each other, and winners (determined through ‘Groupie’ donations) moved to the next round.. We enjoyed 6 weeks of band battles, and we raised $54,000 for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. Now that we have a roarin’ return to live entertainment, we are targeting to raise $110,000 to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
