Circus at the Edge of the World


Wonderbolt Productions is ecstatic to announce the 5th annual St. John’s International CircusFest (SJICF) will be coming September 2022!


With local artists and renowned Circus companies from Québec now able to join us at the edge of the world, we’re planning all kinds of industry panels, fun parties, outrageous new performances, and – oh, did we mention the parties?!! Building on the success of previous years’ sold-out performances, SJICF is also returning to the stage!

We’re partnering with some of Canada’s biggest names in Circus to bring their latest shows to St. John’s. However, as last year’s digital festival proved, online events are incredible popular and very effective in reaching those who can’t yet make the trip to Newfoundland.


Last year’s online industry panels and workshops were very popular with the International Circus community, so with this in mind, SJICF plans to expand and further integrate our digital events into our live and in-person events. Industry web panels and workshops will again be broadcast from Memorial University’s Emera Innovation Exchange (EIX) to properly host our digital gatherings and ensure we present the best video quality possible.


Wonderbolt Productions has been providing unique, original theatrical presentations to audiences in Newfoundland and Labrador and across Canada for more than thirty-five years.
