Brampton On Stage is proud to provide space, production resources, and marketing support to increase space for creative presentation, production and participation of Brampton artists as a part of the Culture Master Plan and the 2022-2027 Performing Arts Strategic Plan. THIS IS BRAMPTON aims to:

  • Facilitate Venue Access for Curators: Provide venue access to curators and creatives, enabling diverse programming and artistic expression.

  • Amplify Brampton's Mosaic of Cultures: Ensure representation and celebration of Brampton's diverse cultures, fostering inclusivity and cultural exchange. 


THIS IS BRAMPTON launched as a dedicated series in 2018 and included 5 curators: B-Jazzed, Brampton Says, Brampton's Very Own (later Off the Record), SounDrive Records, and Unpeeled.

In the 23/24 season, THIS IS BRAMPTON supported 26 performances featuring 105 artists and bands.

Originally planned as a series specific to The Rose Studio, THIS IS BRAMPTON has grown to include performances in Garden Square, livestreams, and LBP and The Rose Mainstage!

During COVID closures, THIS IS BRAMPTON moved online, first as Facebook/Instagram Live performances from artists' homes, and then to livestreams cut from multiple camera angles on The Rose Mainstage. While our venues were closed, we were able to host 23 live concerts and support 42 artists in our community.

Curators all have strong ties to Brampton or Peel and are passionate about creating opportunities for artists to be seen and celebrated in their hometown. While some THIS IS BRAMPTON curators focus on emerging local talents, Brampton On Stage has also hosted JUNO & Grammy Award-winning artists with celebrated careers performing across Canada, and around the world.

THIS IS BRAMPTON has been generously sponsored by FACTOR.
