About the Event

Compostable Concerts is a zero-waste concert series that aims to use music to inspire an emotional connection to the way waste impacts the planet and to inspire action toward sustainable living.  

Doors open at 7. At 7:30 we'll have two sets of original music by the delightful Kitchener-based singer-songwriter, Richard Garvey. Between sets there will be an opportunity to take (or renew!) our zero-waste pledge and claim a free zero waste mason jar curtesy of Full Circle Foods! 

Concert Tickets:

$15 online or at the door 

$10 if you walk or bike to the show! 


Richard Garvey is guitar-strumming, banjo-plucking, and sing-along-starting performer and community organizer from Kitchener. His award winning songs explore the highs and lows of love, injustice, and the marbled mess of the human condition. Whether he’s playing to a living room or an amphitheatre, Richard brings clever songs and a sly sense of humour to inspire solidarity, hope, and change.  If you’re looking for the latest incarnation of world-changing, foot-stomping, and heart-filling folk music, see Richard Garvey. 


The Queen Street Commons Café, located at 43 Queen Street South in Kitchener, is part of the Working Centre. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.  

There are a couple of small steps at the entrance to the cafe. 

There is limited parking (another great reason to walk/bike/unicycle/bus/cartwheel over to the show!).  

If there are any barriers (physical, financial, etc.) you face that require accommodation, let us know! compostable

Share This Event

The creators of Compostable Concerts are grateful to live, work, and play in Kitchener-Waterloo, which is situated on the Haldimand tract. This land was promised to the Haudenosaunee people and is the ancestral land of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee of Six Nations Confederacy, Neutral/Attawandaron, and any other nations who have cared for the land, recorded or unrecorded. 

We also acknowledge all other caretakers of the land: the worms that turn the soil, the bees that pollinate the flowers, the trees that protect against erosion and filter our water, and we believe that the privilege of calling this land home comes with a great responsibility to care for it, and to leave it better than we found it.
