We charge 25 cents per km from the Ottawa, so if your show is 200km away, it will be 400km there and back and will cost $100 for travel. Each show description (above)
tells whether the show is based in Ottawa, Montreal or both. We use Mapquest to calculate driving times. There will also be accomodations charges if we are required to stay overnight.
Example: Travel costs from Ottawa to Kitchener, Onatrio would be
$300 Gas (6 hours) and $112 hotel (average cost for one night, 2 persons) = $412 total travel costs.
Minimum Service Charge for Distance Shows
If the show you desire costs less than the minimum service charge for your area (see chart below), you will have to pay the minium service charge plus travel expenses as well.
Another alternative is to find other organisations in your area to partner with so that the total service charge between
the organisations is at least the minimum service charge or greater. This will allow you to pay the regular price of the show, plus a discount of up to 10%. As well, all organiations can share the travel costs.

A cut off date is set one month prior to the show. In the event of cancellation after the cutoff date , because of rain or any other reason, the client must pay half price.
The client may cancel with no obligations prior to the cutoff date.
In the event that Junkyard Symphony cancels before the cutoff date, Junkyard Symphony will offer the client a show of the same value at a later date for half price.
In the event that Junkyard Symphony cancels at any time after the cutoff date Junkyard Symphony will offer the client a show at a later date for free.
Junkyard Symphony may be forced to end outdoor shows early because of unsuitable weather. In this case the client will be offered a price reduction on a future show.
