MAC at West Edge | Open Mic Night

What's MAC at West Edge?

Launched in 2018, MAC at West Edge is a monthly open mic night hosted on each third Thursday of the month. Each open mic night features a host/MC from Mississauga, a visual artist displaying their artwork, and up to  20 local musicians, singers, poets and performers.  The program is a partnership between the Mississauga Arts CouncilWest Edge Community Church and their volunteer-run cafe, Common Ground Cafe in Port Credit.

West Edge provides a beautiful performance space with seating and Common Ground Cafe provides warm beverages and baked goods for purchase, with all proceeds going towards preventing human-trafficking in the Peel Region. MAC sources hosts, visual artists and performers to create a comfortable and creative art-filled evening for all to enjoy.
