interPLAY 2011 Going Big in New Home!!!
In its 21st year, interPLAY, “Events Wood Buffalo’s signature Street Festival”, will land in a new location with a multitude of premiere additions and perennial favourites. The organization recently celebrated its continued partnership with TransAlta now in its 10thyear as Title Sponsor!
“interPLAY is a street festival at heart, and joining forces with Keyano College on King Street has presented monster opportunities for growth and development,’ said Claude Giroux, Executive Director of Events Wood Buffalo.
The additional space has allowed the event to add some significant new surprises to its bag of offerings which include rubberNsmoke - a stunt bike show that features fun that’s barely legal, Theatre X - an adults only nighttime naughty theatre series, Wood Buffalo Country Fair - joining interPLAY for the first time, and the addition of a second music stage - the Surmount World Stage. “The great thing about interPLAY is that there is truly something for everyone to see and do,” said Giroux. Some of the big numbers include: 18 indoor theatre shows with over 84 performances, 8 world-class street performers in over 64 performances on two different street pitches, and a 60-vendor marketplace in the middle of King Street. “We dare you to see it all.”
To help you see it all, interPLAY organizers have also made it easy. Patrons can buy a passport for $39 and see each and every show in our indoor venues individually priced between $8-$20 each. You can see them all, see your favorites multiple times and do it all for one easy price.
Volunteers and supporters alike are invited to kick start the event at the Community BBQ starting at 5pm on Thursday, August 4th. “This is our chance to show our sincere heartfelt appreciation and recognize their contribution,” said Misty Oakes, Communications and Development Director of Events Wood Buffalo. “We look forward to seeing everyone at the BBQ to help celebrate our organization’s success.”
Events Wood Buffalo is still accepting volunteer applications to join the Shell Volunteer Team for interPLAY 2011. Visit www.eventswoodbuffalo.comfor more details.
