Edmonton (and Saskatoon) Fringe.

Edmonton Fringe is big. There are also 180 or so indoor shows. And the indoor shows are only a small part of it--apparently 75% of the people who come down to the festival site never even see an indoor show. For them there are six busking pitches, with world class street performers working all day long. There are also food stalls galore, carnival rides, a dance party tent... it's ridiculous.

The indoor show went well. Good attendance, especially considering it was my first time there. And got a good review from Vue Weekly.

(Before that, a brief visit to Saskatoon where I did not bring my indoor show, but worked the street. Saskatoon was lovely, and though the festival is small, it was worth it to see some old friends and visit a beautiful place.)
