Join Canary Nation as we partner with the Music And Gaming Festival to throw an amazing party featuring what MAGFest does best: music and games! Come on out for burgers fresh off the grill, live music, and epic games. Relax in the Tea Room or get your competitive fix outside with lawn sports.
Canary is a mental health inclusive night life event group. We believe that as a metric for the health of our social environments, we should look to people who are more sensitive to problematic conditions. By collaboratively striving to make our events appealing and safe for these “canaries,” in the process we create spaces that are more comfortable and fun for everyone.
If you are dealing with depression, anxiety, etc, you will discover a safe, caring, and inclusive space. It is our amazing volunteers who make this happen, and we want YOU on our team! Whether you’re full of awesome ideas, are having a rough day, or don’t know how exactly you can help, there are always opportunities for those who want to contribute. Simply having an attitude of caring and support goes a long way.
Canary events are as awesome as the volunteers who make them happen. We have a big space, a moderate budget, and a lot of creative minds. Our most amazing events happen when everyone contributes. So far on the roster we have:
Canary events are known for having amazing food. Pomegranate Pecan Chicken, Malaysian Pumpkin Curry, etc. We will be grilling up burgers, and the Deluxe Expansion Pack includes Waffle Burgers with a buffet of toppings. To unlock, we need people to bring toppings and set up the waffle irons.
Volunteers needed: 7
Jam Sesh! Are you an undiscovered talent? Is your best friend the next DJ Cutman? Seize your chance for a big break and sign up to play. Volunteers needed: 5
Bring your favorite game and your favorite gamers. If you’ve ever driven your friends crazy with your obsession over “that one game” this spot is for you! We want people with an infectious passion about the game they’re bringing. Our host tragically only has Mario Kart for the Switch, so bring other consoles, mini TVs, and games.
Volunteers needed: 4
We have a huge yard just waiting to be played on. If you want to play touch football, soccer, or Smack the Exercise Ball With Your Face, here’s your chance to have it added to the roster.
Volunteers needed: 3
Anything else you’d want to do? We welcome your ideas! Canary shares the famous MAG attitude, “If you have an idea to make awesome happen, speak up!” Just comment below or message the host, Scribbles. If you’d like more information about Canary check out our about and Principles of Citizenship.
Most of Canary’s policies are similar to MAGFest, but with one significant difference: Canary-hosted events are always sober. In order to support and include people overcoming addiction, we don’t allow any drug & alcohol references or use at our events. While this policy does not extend to nicotine products, we strongly encourage attendees to support those who are overcoming nicotine addiction by avoiding its use or reference.
