Let Them Entertain You!
Consider hiring a circus act for your event! Firefly Theatre and Circus in Edmonton brings an eye-popping aerial acrobatic routine to the stage. Their entertainers will wow your guests both in the air and on the ground.
Safire Dance based out of Calgary specializes in movement and dance arts. You can choose from hula hooping, juggling, stilts, and spinning shows.
Or, introduce your guests to Edmonton’s Rapid Fire Theatre improv actors. They’ll wow the audience with an interactive show while incorporating your theme or message into the performance.
Get in on the Action
Interactive entertainment allows your guests to become participants, rather than just spectators, which can facilitate networking and conversation. Skip the usual icebreakers and get right to the activities with rentals like sumo suits, jousting equipment, dunk tanks, mini golf, and other fun games for children and adults alike! (in Red Deer, in Calgary, and in Edmonton) For a cutting-edge activity that will get your guests’ blood pumping, hire a mobile axe throwing unit (in Calgary, and in Edmonton).
DJs are a dime a dozen, but some offer special services that bring the focus back to your guests. Mr. Entertainment in Edmonton offers Bingo Tunes, Karaoke, and Trivia packages alongside their DJ services, making your music so much more than just background noise.
Something to Talk About
Alberta is brimming with talent! One-of-a-kind acts will be the talk of the office after a conference, Christmas party, or meeting. Custom performances by Pegasus Murder Mysteries & Theatrical Performances can be designed to fit into your theme, honour a special guest, or get your guests laughing, while Val Hilliker’s jaw-dropping ventriloquist skills will entertain a crowd of any age.
To dial up the magic, bring Sheldon Casavant’s world-renowned illusionist performance to the stage. And, if a warm and light ambiance is what you’re after, The Harp Angel (aka Deborah Nyack) creates beautiful musical backdrops for weddings and Christmas parties in the Rocky Mountains.
Thank your guests by offering entertaining activities rolled up into party favours. A caricature artist is a great way to engage your attendees, while also providing them with a keepsake that will remind them of the event for years to come. Catherine McMillan of The QuirkyArt Cafe in Edmonton has been producing flattering and fun images for over 27 years. The Nose also offers several artists with a range of styles across Alberta.
For a different kind of treat, you can bring a spa right to your venue. Mobile spa services offer massage, facials, pedicures, and more on-the-go treatments. Let the relaxation experts at Feel Fabulous Mobile Spa pamper your guests so they leave feeling recharged and inspired.
