The City of St. John’s is looking for local musicians and dancers to perform for cruise ship visitors this summer.

The city is taking applications from artists who can deliver performances that will showcase our culture and heritage to tourists through music, song and dance.

Mayor Dennis O’Keefe is projecting a record cruise ship season this year, with 22 ships carrying more than 33,000 visitors booked to come to St. John’s. Cruise St. John’s helps plan special activities for the tourists.

More information on the application process can be found on the City of St. John’s website at www.stjohns.ca under “Forms and Applications — Arts and Culture,” or can be obtained by e-mailing tourismdevelopment@stjohns.ca or calling 576-2315. The deadline for application submission is April 30.
