Circle: The Traveling Food, Beer & Music CarnivalThe Carnival returns for the 6th anniversary and this year will be bigger than ever! This year Circle becomes a 2 day event!
The gates now open on Friday, September 13th for a special Adult Night from 4pm - 10pm. You must be 18+ to enter.
On Saturday, it's the usual All Ages Carnival Fun all day long. Everyone is welcome, even fido!
What’s in store, you ask? Plenty!
Two curated stages of music and dance from top local DJ's, international touring acts and festival favourites presented by BassBus. We select a perfect middle ground on all fronts for Circle’s musical backdrop: styles progress from upbeat funk and catchy folk during the daytime, to an all out fire-infused, brightly coloured party when the sun goes down. Expect soulful melodies, big funky basslines, and dancefloors full of smiling faces.
Three bars by Village Brewery, with a site wide liquor license to keep everyone milling happily about our entire transformed festival grounds. Sip on the Village Brew classics you know and love or knock back a highball before you cruise to whatever festival silliness you fancy.
Local food by YYCFoodTrucks, from BBQ to gelato to perogies - every palate and craving you may or may not have can be satisfied from noon to night, so don’t worry about packing a lunch.
The Fast ‘n’ The Furriest Wiener Dog Race - for all the excitement and fast-paced shenanigans happening at Circle, suffice it to say that the Fast ‘n’ The Furriest Wiener Dog Race is without a doubt the pinnacle of competition and intensity for the day. Watch out, folks, the stakes are high!
Carnival Market, featuring local artisan vendors - deck out your sunshiney wardrobe, find that perfect accessory, and support craftspeople and merchants who live and work in your community.
Circus performers in every corner, from the main stage to roving characters.
Kids Stage - magicians and kooky delights galore at this fun stop amongst the larger revelry
Circus School for kids - turn that endless ball of energy into something new and fun. Awaken new passions for dance and performance that your young ones didn’t even know they had.
Lego Land - build, craft, create and share. An endless pile of ever-shifting colourful fun.
Last year we added a giant 30,000 Ball Pit for kids & adults, which will no doubt return once again!
Plus expect some new exciting surprises!
