Artistic Producer`s Welcome

Shelley-head-shot-6It’s true: dogs dressed like people are pretty fun. But StreetFest is even MORE fun!

It’s time to bring your friends and family to Sir Winston Churchill Square for 10 days of play. We welcome all of you - the artists, audiences and all of our supporters - to the 31st edition of StreetFest!

The Edmonton International Street Performers Festival has been bringing a smile to the face of Edmonton for over 30 years...bringing the world’s best street acts to Churchill Square each summer. We thank our artists, volunteers, board, staff, sponsors, supporters and audiences for making the Festival what it is today.

It is always a pleasure to say there is no ticket required to access the Square for StreetFest. It is you, the audience member, who decides the true value of the performance at the end of each show by making a contribution directly to the artists. Edmonton audiences have an extraordinary reputation for generosity, as well as for wholehearted participation and enthusiasm, making StreetFest a Festival that’s praised by street performers around the world.

My eternal appreciation goes out to our Board of Directors, and the amazing and hardworking volunteers and staff for the truly inspiring efforts they contribute to the Festival each year. You all make me smile! Additionally, I’d like to thank the City of Edmonton through the Edmonton Arts Council, the Department of Canadian Heritage, and the Government of Alberta through the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Alberta Lottery Fund for their vital ongoing support of our Festival and the community, our province and our country.

Please join us on the Square where together we will be treated to the best artists from the world of street performance. From jugglers to acrobats, roving animators to clowns, balloon artists to dancers, they are ready to bring joy to your summer days, a big smile to your face, and sweet memories to your heart!

May Your Hearts and Hats be Full…


Shelley Switzer
