Treefort 2019 Second Chance Shows


Second chance shows are official unofficial Treefort shows. While these shows are not “technically” part of Treefort (you won’t find them on the schedule), they are hosted by our friends, pals and partners and give you a chance to see an artist you may have missed due to conflicts in your schedule, napping, catching up with pals at Alefort or resting your weary legs at Filmfort!

All second chance shows are free and open to the public.

Whatever the reason, here are all the details you need! Check back often as things get updated.
