Street performing is one of the most honest forms of entertainment - it allows you to watch the show, and then decide how much to pay for all that laughter and amazement. Festival admission is by donation to festival organizers, Epilepsy Toronto, collected by our volunteers at the main entrances to the festival. Each performer collects their own remunerations by passing a hat after their performance, which goes directly to that performer or act.
How much you pay the performers, is always up to you. With the money you pay at the gates you are not only supporting the festival, but also the 40,000 people living with Epilepsy in the GTA, and their families. So one thing is for sure, whatever you spend, you’ll always get more than your money’s worth!
