The circus is coming to town

Local Shifty Bits Cult just released the Shifty Bits Circus II line up. The Cult is made up of a collection of Fredericton bands including Motherhood, Maiden Names, Kurtis Eugene and The Waking Night. All acts are performing and had a hand in curating and organizing this event.


The Circus is a four-day festival, running from July 25 to 28. The line up includes some of Fredericton favorites like The Floogs, Belle Comedians, The Ray Finkles, Josh Bravener and Redwood Fields. Not to be left out are Nova Scotia’s Jon Mckiel, Construction + Destruction and Quaker Parents. Saint John’ers David R. Elliott and Wooden Wives are also stopping in. Just to name a few.

The event not only showcases great East Coast talent, but also offers other activities to keep festival goers busy, like a scavenger hunt, movie screening and ‘Something Secret’ on the last night. The event is all ages and is taking place at various places throughout the city.
