“The festival this year is filled with shows that everyone can enjoy, from dance, comedy, drag, play readings and full productions,” says executive director Sara Graham in a media release. “The festival has a show for everyone to enjoy.”
Billed as the largest performing arts festival east of Montreal, it runs for 12 days with over 60 shows and 350 performances from August 30 through September 10 at Neptune Theatre’s Studio Stage, The Bus Stop Theatre, Shakespeare by the Sea, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and more. Organizers have announced that masks will be mandatory all all indoor venues, and they will provide free masks for those who forget to bring one.
“Artists are putting on shows they believe in this year,” says Graham. “We look forward to seeing the city support the art it has cultivated and watching our artists thrive in their creations.”
The uncurated and unjuried festival is unique in that 100% of the box office ticket price set out by the artist is returned to them.
