Edmonton International Street Performers Festival

The Moveable Feast: Meet Mr. & Mrs. White – a mystical, silent, ghostly couple dressed in white, strolling through the crowd. Have your photo taken with them as they search for the perfect picnic spot to indulge in their invisible picnic at the Silver Skate Festival on Family day, February 21!

Linda Karenko and Darrin Hagen are the performers behind the makeup. They have been presenting these characters for the past decade at various festivals and events throughout Alberta – summer and winter.

Canada Wildlife Federation

Dee (The Chickadee) and Maggie (The Magpie) are hatchlings from this past spring, and it’s their first ever winter. During the first snowstorm of the year they are blown all the way across the River Valley, far away from their home at Cloverdale Food Forest. They meet each other while sheltering from the storm in the same tree and team up to make the journey home to Cloverdale together. Along the way, they meet and learn from other winter wildlife how to survive winters in Edmonton better. They also learn how humans can help urban wildlife to survive & thrive in the winter.

Join in the fun and follow along with the story by visiting 5 ‘story stations’ and completing activities inspired by the story. With each activity you complete you will find out a letter of the alphabet. After you’ve completed all the stations and collected all the letters you can rearrange them to reveal a secret message. Get your map to start the adventure at the WILD Outside booth.

Weekends 1pm-5pm
