In this new wave of virtual festivals, the Street Performers Festival has pitched a tent that not only covers performances, but also teaches new skills through a series of online workshops.
COVID-19 has hamstrung a great many leisure activities and watching television reruns can become boring after a month or two.
So we’ve rounded up the traditional antidote for the blues – a hefty dose of laughter.
The 36th year of Edmonton International Street Performers Festival is going digital this summer from July 3 to 12.
Generally, the street fest is an environment where both new and established artists meet each other and share stories, tips and tricks. This year, rubbing elbows will be out of the question.
