cirque du soleil

Cirque du Soleil has created a special outdoor experience that is based on unique Island culture and stories. This Cirque du Soleil event will be the first creation of its kind to come to Atlantic Canada, and will debut as a highlight of Charlottetown’s all-new family focused SummerFest.

It's a departure from the “under the big-top” shows that over 90 million people have come to know and love, but will be equally as intriguing! The backdrop to this unique outdoor experience will be the incredible Charlottetown waterfront, which will be the centre of activity for SummerFest.
