Truck Stop by Machine de Cirque

August 10, 2018
Municipal Plaza, outside City Hall 

A motley group of campers in search of adventure and thrills decides to hitch up their trailer and head out across Canada. With a well-stocked cooler, windows wide open and music blaring, they are all set for an epic odyssey on wheels.

This electrifying circus by Machine de Cirque takes you on a coast-to-coast tour in under an hour with high flying acrobatics, music and a healthy dose of hilarity.

Expect to see six different sets – all unpacked from a single trailer – portraying the crossing of Canada from east to west, from the Atlantic coasts to the Prairies and through the Rockies.

Brought to you by the Calgary Downtown Association and Arts Commons, this is a FREE show for families and children of all ages.

*No Seating provided. Please feel free to bring your own low-height festival chairs and snacks!

The fun doesn’t stop there! In addition to seeing the circus, drop by Arts Commons across MacLeod Trail for Happenings, featuring performances, crafts, and activities from local circus artists, performers, and visual artists from 4:00pm to 8:00pm!

Frequently Asked Questions: 

Where should I park?

Will there be food?

We encourage you to bring your own snacks. However, there are great restaurants and bars all along 8th avenue and there will be a couple of food trucks with snacks like popcorn and hotdogs (circus style!) on hand.

What if it rains?

The Truck Stop performance will be abbreviated if it rains, for safety reasons, but the show will go on! Calgary’s weather is unpredictable, so make sure you come prepared for anything!

Does this cost anything?

No, this is free!

Where is it all taking place?

Truck Stop happens at Municipal Plaza for 2 performances at 5pm and 8pm. Happenings runs from 4pm-8pm and will take place at Olympic Plaza as well as throughout Arts Commons.
