Festival of Fools 2024

Festival of Fools has a NEW LOCATION!

Find us at CF Polo Park's Centre Court March 23 - 29, 2024!

The Festival of Fools is a free family event held during the school spring break. 

The Festival of Fools is linked with the WICF's Circus Arts (C.A.M.P.) programs. While the C.A.M.P. social circus program was winning headlines and awards, WICF organizers realized that they were also bringing a huge troupe of talented and dynamic performers to the city and no one (outside of the opening day C.A.M.P. performances) was getting to see their amazing shows! Thus, with support from The Winnipeg Arts Council, the Festival of Fools was born!

This 7-day free family festival features jugglers, clowns, acrobats, swinging trapeze and tons of hilarious shows! The WICF "passes the hat" for donations at the end of each show to both continue to present the best in family entertainment, and to keep the festival affordable for everyone!
