Great Outdoors Comedy Festival

Friday, 25 August 2023 - The Great Outdoors Comedy Festival is back again at Prince’s Island Park! August 26 & 27 you don't want to miss Calgary’s headliners, Jonathan Van Ness and Andrew Schulz! On Saturday, Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness will lead the way with a uniquely fun performance alongside Drag Race favourites MonĂ©t X Change and Priyanka. On Sunday, Andrew Schulz visits Prince’s Island Park with his notoriously hilarious comedy, with Annie Lederman and more to come! In Calgary this year, a portion of proceeds from ticket sales on August 26 will be donated to Accessible Queer Spaces, a fund created to support queer venues, spaces, and events, to become accessible to all people in our community. Proceeds from August 27 will go to to The Mustard Seed, an organization caring for individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty. In addition, proceeds from the festival’s 50/50 draw will support Easter Seals Alberta’s Camp Horizon, which provides individuals with disabilities and medical conditions with life-changing outdoor camp experiences. - Event Details
