Well its been pretty busy lately, and I have had my hands full getting ready for the summer season. I’m trying to get some more recording done, before its time to hit the streets. You know,” fun fun fun til daddy takes the t-bird away” Then there are all the summer bookings and festival applications that are due right now, and I’m behind as usual.
Anyway I thought what the heck, you might be planning your summer too. Nothing gets you through winter better than making summer plans while being holed up in your house while the winter winds howl. So here are some of my favorite summer events I always have a great time at.
Cathedral Village Arts Festival Street Fair
Regina SK, May 26, 2018
12 blocks of artisans showing off their work. What amazes me is the skill, originality of products, and the lack of duplication.
Moose Jaw Sidewalk Days Festival
Moose Jaw SK, July 5, 6, 7, 2018
The sidewalk sale to end all sidewalk sales, 3 days of excitement, with an air show thrown in. Something for everyone of all ages. Bouncy castles, wrestling, music stages, rides, tours through underground tunnels , speakeasy,s food, and an old time band. And when your done you can hit the spa or the casino. Doesn’t get any better than this.
Edmonton Fringe Festival August Edmonton AB 16-26, 2018
So much fun, so much creativity. The artist who make this happen are absolutely incredible. I mean I do a lot of crazy shit, have a lot of off beat ideas, but these guys are humbling. If you love originality, artistic fearlessness, and live theatre in a well managed event, then this is the one for you. On the street, in the venues you’ll be blown away.
That’s it for now, I’ll mention a few more when they come to me, but these events are always first class.
