Join us in Sir Winston Churchill Square in downtown Edmonton for the 30th annual Edmonton International Street Performers Festival. Home to over 1500 outdoor performances by musicians, jugglers, acrobats and unicyclists, StreetFest is proud to present another ten days of international street artists this July!
TODAY IS THE PERFECT DAY TO…
NOT CIRCLE YOUR CALENDARS FOR OUR
NO RUBBER CHICKEN EVENT
You are Invited to NOT Attend!
If you DIDN'T attend last time, you'll enjoy it even MORE this time!
DON'T save the date, save your time instead. However you look at it,DON’T come to
The Edmonton International Street Performers Festival’s
No Rubber Chicken Event,
which will NOT take place on .
It’s NOT an auction, NOT a gala, NOT yet another rubber chicken dinner.
So what IS it?!
It’s the return of our creative fundraiser with a twist!
Instead of asking you to spend money on a ticket, a manicure, a babysitter, parking and drinks at a cash bar – not to mention how much your time is worth - we invite you to invest that money directly into StreetFest and its accessible programs.
In return, you get to enjoy a relaxing pre-festival evening at home - while helping to keep StreetFest on the streets where it belongs.
Here's How it Works:
At various times leading up to the Rubber Chicken Event, you’ll receive an Enewsletter like this one. Each Enewsletter will present new opportunities to support the Festival. No
Today you can “BUY A TICKET” for $50 by going to our No RubberChicken website page where we have a PayPal Non-Person ready to take your online order. In our next Enewsletter, another fun offer will be made to add to your Non-Event fun!
What you DO get is:
A tax receipt
A chance to help a wonderful cause, where the money raised goes directly into supporting StreetFest and its programs.
A fun and interactive in-joke for fans and supporters of the performing arts in Edmonton.
At a media event in City Hall on February 19th, the Edmonton International Street Performers Festival kicked off its 30th Anniversary year with performances, the announcement of a NEW fundraiser, and the unveiling of a NEW look. The NEW Festival fundraiser, Vaudeville Madness, took place on February 22nd and was a success in transforming the winter ‘blahs’ into 'oohs & ahhs'…while raising funds for the Festival and its programs.
Thank you to all who bought tickets and enjoyed the show! And extra special thanks for the artists involved (Annie Dugan from Firefly Circus; singer-songwriter Andrea House; Ron Pearson with his Mystery Wonder Show, Calgary stunt clown Gustavo the Impossiblist, and Aytahn Ross with his circus/comedy act, The Great Balanzo.) Thank you also to the Festival Board of Directors who initiated and implemented this fundraiser in support of StreetFest.
The Festival also unveiled a new look for its 30th year. Over the coming months, our new brand will be unrolled along with the 2014 Festival campaign. “Here at StreetFest we take the business of “happiness”- aka “smiling”- as serious business. As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we’ve set a goal to make Edmonton one of the happiest places on earth. We want you to share a smile at every turn. Our new logo characterizes the essence of our Festival. Today and tomorrow,” said Festival Board President Sue Broderick.
The 30th Anniversary Edition of the Edmonton International Street Performers Festival takes place in Sir Winston Churchill Square, July 4 – 13, 2014.
