Application Process

The following is the application process if you are interested in becoming an entertainer at a City of Poway special event:

  1. Promotional materials for musical entertainment groups are only accepted during the months of October through December and must be postmarked no later than, or emailed by, December 31.
  2. Musical entertainment groups must submit promotional materials each year to be considered for City-sponsored special events that occur that year. Promotional materials will be kept on file for 1 calendar year only.
  3. City staff will contact all entertainment groups that have been selected to participate in the Summer Concert in the Park Series. If your group has not been contacted by March 1, your group has not been chosen to participate in this year's Summer Concert in the Park Series.
  4. City staff will also refer to promotional materials submitted between October and December to book entertainment at special events throughout the year. City staff will contact entertainment groups that have been selected for special event entertainment approximately 2 to 3 months prior to the event.
  5. Promotional materials may be submitted by mail or email (please type the name of your band and musical genre in the subject line). The mailing address is:
    • City of Poway, Lake Poway
      Attn: Event Entertainment
