Alberta Circus Arts Festival

All About The Festival

Come one, come all, from June 2023, 2024 for the Alberta Circus Arts Festival, hosted by Firefly Theatre and Circus. Join us for four days of Canadian contemporary circus performances, along with free activities for everyone. There are professional development workshops for emerging and established artists, panels and discussions on sector development for industry professionals, and outreach opportunities for all. Local audiences will be treated to world-class Canadian contemporary circus on an intimate scale, showcasing performers from across the country. From cutting-edge performances to true-life inspirational stories, and dancing, flying chaos, we have it all.  Plus free stilt walking and juggling workshops for everyone. Join us in the heart of YEG’s francophone community at La Cité for the ACAF!

Firefly Theatre and Circus recognizes that the land where we create and share our stories is located on Treaty 6 territory as well as Region 4 of Métis Nation of Alberta, the traditional territories of the nêhiyawak, Saulteaux, Niisitapi, Nakota Sioux, Dene, Métis, and other peoples.  We recognize that we are part of a collective journey of growth, embracing creation, and working alongside everyone who calls this land home.
