Little Big Top
Step right up to the amazing Little Big Top
New for 2017, this tented performance stage featuring exclusive shows by festival performers that you won’t see on any other stage during the festival (and a few special performers not appearing anywhere else in the festival).

Combining a classic circus sideshow with some the most amazing modern talent you’ll find anywhere, these shows can get a little wild.

The Little Bit Top includes seating, air-conditioning, and spectacular 15-minute performances all for the upfront price of only $5 (no busking here). Running from 1pm to close of the festival each day, this brand of quick wit and quick turn-around shows, already extremely popular at festivals across Australia, in New Zealand and the US, are now, for the first time, coming to Toronto!

The Space Cowboy

Sideshow celebrity, The Space Cowboy will be performing some of the stunts he is best known for, but are not included in his regular street show. One of the most innovative sword swallowers alive, he performs an ever-expanding list of sideshow stunts including swallowing a LED tube, or lifting weights with hooks in his eye sockets. Be warned - this 44 time Guinness World Record holder is not for the faint of heart, but this living phenomena is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.
The Sentimentalists

On Saturday afternoon, take in The Sentimentalists, stars of the Bell TV Fibe show ‘Something Strange’ and recently back from performing at the most exclusive Magic Club in the world, the Magic Castle in Hollywood, world renown mentalist Mysterion teams with Canada’s only female mentalist, Steffi Kay to create a two-person mind reading experience that is truly breathtaking!
...and much more!
Magic and mayhem, the tent will also include performances by magicians Nigel Blackstorm (the Heavy Metal Magician), Bella Magic and Diogo Alvares; Hula hoop and circus artists, Becky Hoops, Duo ComicCasa and Isabella Hoops; unique comedy performances by Shay Horay, Fraser Hooper; and more!
