It is with heavy hearts that we announce that the Alberta Circus Arts Festival will be postponed until June 2021. Our priority is the health and safety of our artists, audience, and volunteers and we support the efforts of all governing bodies to mitigate and control the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. In the spirit of building a strong, flourishing, and vibrant Canadian circus community for our future, we invite you to attend and participate in the Alberta Circus Arts Festival, June 25 – 27, 2021.

We wish you all safety, health, and strength amidst these challenging times.

Stay well,
Annie, Erin and Stephanie
