The 2016 Camrose Street Performers Festival, will be around Mirror Lake, west of downtown. Look for Tourist Information and the Bill Fowler Centre.



There will be ample parking south of 48th Avenue, as well as street parking north of the lake.


There's a band shell, on the north side of the lake, a stage on the south side, playground for kids, paved trail around the lake and a footbridge across the lake. A perfect location for a festival and by October 1...the mosquitoes should be gone!
