Edmonton International Street Performers Festival
July 5, 2019 - July 14, 2019
Watch dancers spin innovative body tales and mimes pull laughs out of thin air. Run into roving character actors whose gig is launching an improv interaction…with you! Every July more than 60 international, national and local artists fuel a daily juggernaut of 150 zany outdoor performances when the International Street Performers Festival turns Dr. Wilbert Mcintyre Park into busker central.
A creative whirlwind of acts – witty and wonderful, kooky and comical or just plain silly – this is the best of entertainment and art on a street level: short, sweet and accessible to anyone, even kids. Try out the Be Your Own Busker workshop and learn tricks of the trade and play some fun games. Push the envelope of naughtiness and laughter at Late Night Madness, evenings of big kid-oriented cabaret performances on an indoor stage. And the nightly closing act of Troupe du Jour showcases the best of the fest with an hour-long gala featuring different performers every night staging family-friendly variety shows.
Admission – you decide by honouring the ‘Pass the Hat’ tradition!
