NEXTFEST NITE CLUB AND FUNDRAISER: The Fascinating Faire

Deadline for Applications: Thursday, February 1, 2024 at 11:59 pm

The Nextfest Arts Company is thrilled to announce our call for applications for our fundraiser and March Nite Club: The Fascinating Faire

ABOUT THE FUNDRAISER/ NITE CLUB
Date:
Saturday, March 2, 2024

Collect your parsley, sage and thyme and prepare your elf ears, your D&D capes, your corsets, your fairy wings, your flower crowns and your mushroom caps; team Nextfest is throwing an unmissable fundraiser.

Part renaissance faire, part craft market, part fairy circle, part infamous Nextfest Nite Club: Edmonton’s emerging artists gather for an all-ages one-night-only extravaganza at the Roxy with live performances, roving characters, craft stations, libations, and a market of local makers.

Come dressed to impress in your medieval, renaissance, fantasy, princess-core, goblin-core, D&D, witch best, or stay comfy in your casual clothes- all are welcome at The Fascinating Faire!

(Just please keep your costumes appropriate for an all-ages audience and never make someone’s identity or culture your costume).
