SkirtsAfire Festival is coming to YEG!

SkirtsAfire Festival in Edmonton is self-described as “diverse and daring”. When you visit the festival be prepared to be immersed in powerful, beautiful, engaging performances, exhibits and workshops in Theatre, Poetry, Spoken Word, Design, Art, Dance, Cabaret, Music, Comedy, Yoga, and more.

We have taken in their 2017 & 2018 MainStage Productions. In 2018, The Romeo Initiative, written by Trina Davies was half romantic comedy, half spy thriller, and all entertainment.

The Mamas and a few contributors even had the pleasure of attending the Opening Night Party.

This 4-day multidisciplinary arts festival focuses on empowering, developing, supporting, and showcasing women artists in all our diversity. They represent and therefore welcome women artists of all backgrounds including trans women, self-identifying women, the LGBTQ2 community, all ethnicities and all abilities. Running in conjunction with International Women’s Day, this festival truly celebrates us – in all our unique, amazing talents.

The 2019 festival runs March 7-17
