The Pumphouse Theatre and Calgary Clown Society are happy to announce that the Calgary Clown Festival will move forward in October as planned. Submissions will be extended until April 10, 2020!
Please see the letter below from Chris Gamble:
Hello, my fellow Clowns,
I would like to thank everyone for the tremendous efforts you are putting forward to practice social distancing and keep our planet safe for everyone. I applaud all those clowns that are finding ways to spread positivity and love. In these hard times, it is important to share the gift of laughter. If you are doing something in your community or broadcasting your work via the internet we would love to hear about it and share it on our social platforms.
I am happy to announce that at this point the Calgary Clown Festival will move ahead as planned. I have faith that the actions taken by our government, hard-working first responders and everyone practicing proper social distancing will make it possible for us to resume our regular lives by Autumn. That being said as the festival is many months away and I am not able to plan for every eventuality that might occur from now until the festival in October things might change. Rest assured that I will keep you apprised of any new developments at the festival as they arise.
In the meantime stay safe and stay home. I look forward to being with you all again in body and spirit.
Director – Calgary Clown Festival
