The second annual Alberta Circus Arts Festival returns to our city’s French Quarter (Bonnie Doon) on June 23-26, 2022. Hosted by Edmonton’s own Firefly Theatre and Circus, it will be four days of Canadian contemporary circus performances, development workshops for emerging and established artists, and panel discussions for professionals in the industry.

Local audiences can look forward to four days of world-class Canadian contemporary circus on an intimate scale, with equal parts inspiration, education and entertainment. Watch in awe as performers fly through the air, flip on the ground, and balancing precariously on the edge of life.

Enjoy the family-friendly show Throwback (details below), or visit the website to learn about the more adult friendly show options Sweat & Ink, It’s a Wonderful Night and In The Fire & The Fish At The Bottom of the Sea. Plus all ages can enjoy free stilts workshops on Friday and Saturday!
