Edmonton International Street Performers Festival

Hit the streets and honour the 'pass the hat' tradition!

The Edmonton International Street Performers Festival celebrates their 40th anniversary as they transform Churchill Square into an outdoor 3-ring-circus and feature the world’s best local, national and international street performers. StreetFest delivers spectacle, comedy, music, variety performances and physical feats, as well as workshops to help release your own inner-entertainer. Be part of the crowd and take in an incredible circle-show, actively engage with an installation, watch mimes pull laughs out of thin air or let the roving performers bring the show to you. A whirlwind of acts, a tempest of entertainment, a deluge of fun - all on street level. The larger-than-life entertainment is suitable for all ages!

Admission to the festival is totally free! In the ‘Pass the Hat’ tradition of busking, if you see something you love, you can pay them as much as you’d like!
