Freewill Shakespeare Festival

Get thee to the Edmonton EXPO Centre.

Get thee to a festival that brings the works of the Bard into the realm of everyone from kids to scholars during the Freewill Shakespeare Festival. This season, they are bringing back the audience favourite Romeo and Juliet, as well as Twelfth Night.

The storied festival that began as a pass-the-hat affair in 1989 has since blossomed into a much anticipated summer event. Featuring more than 50 artists producing professional, contemporary renditions of the Bard’s classics; you’ll marvel at the colourful costumes, laugh at the ridiculous conundrums and flinch at the furious fight scenes as you fend off the squirrels trying to steal your popcorn.

Performances will take place at the Edmonton EXPO Centre this year!
