Toronto Clown Festival June 4-7, 2009

The Toronto Festival of Clowns aims to bring together clowns and physical theatre artists of all disciplines and backgrounds and provide a common space to showcase their work.

Now entering their 4th year, the festival continues to encourage the risk and exploration of the clown, hosting new and established works that inspire and delight.

Past festivals have hosted some of North America’s top clowns, including David Craig (Roseneath Theatre, Napalm the Magnificent), Eric Davis (Red Bastard), Dean Gilmour (Theatre Smith-Gilmour), Sue Morrison (Institute of Canadian Clowning) and John Turner (Mump & Smoot).
