Festival of Fools 2023

Here's what you need to know!

  • Free Foolishness at The Forks! Kid-friendly circus and magic shows at 12 pm, 1 pm and 2 pm daily from March 25th - March 31st!
  • Festival of Fools will once again be held on the second floor of The Forks Market - Room 201 - in the northwest corner of the building.
  • All shows are FREE but capacity within the room is limited. We recommend claiming your show tickets to guarantee your spots!
  • Masks are strongly recommended within the performance space.
  • As seating is limited, we will ask that strollers and wagons be parked in the designated area during the show.
  • The Winnipeg International Children's Festival is a non-profit organization that relies on the support of our community to continue to deliver on our mission to provide accessible, inclusive, and educational performance arts and culture-based programming for Manitoba’s youth. After each show, performers will "pass the hat" to collect cash donations. Rest assured, 100% of your donation stays right here in Manitoba!
