2020 Carnival Update

After careful consideration, Circle – The Traveling Food, Beer & Music Carnival is deeply saddened to announce that Circle is cancelled for 2020. Due to the uncertainties of when events will be able to take place again, we have decided to cancel this year’s event and put our focus into making 2021 better than ever. 

Circle has become the end of summer festival to celebrate Calgary’s amazing vitality, food, and music scene. Not only does it bring the colorful, weird and wonderful characteristics of a carnival, it combines all those elements together with international bands, DJs, singer / songwriters and performing artists to create a world class music festival. 

Over the years Circle has travelled to different areas of Calgary to showcase music, performance, art, food, beer and most importantly - community. Our community is very important to us and we can’t wait to connect with all of you again when it’s safe to do so.

That Circle magic that you’ve come to know isn’t going anywhere. Believe that we are looking at how we can adapt from this and bring us all safely together again in 2021. With this in mind, all application forms and ticket sales will remain closed until 2021. If you haven’t yet, please ensure to sign up to the Circle Carnival newsletter to ensure you don’t miss out on future event details, as well as ticket deals. 

Our community is resilient and innovative when empathy, positivity and kindness prevail above all. While these are challenging times, we at Circle remain optimistic that a better tomorrow is on the horizon.  When that day comes, we will celebrate it in a truly memorable way. Stay strong. Stay safe. Stay connected as best you can with your friends and family members. We need each other now more than ever now.  

We welcome you to share your favourite Circle moments through your social channels by tagging your photos @circlecarnival along with hashtag #CircleCarnival. 

Thank you to all the healthcare and frontline workers who have put themselves on the line for all of us. We appreciate you more than we can ever truly express. Our hearts are also with anyone who has been impacted by COVID-19. 

We love you all and thank you for all your support over the years.
See you all in due time!

With love,
The Circle Team
