Ken Muzia is a Canadian country music artist-a troubadour-with a compelling story. His high clear vocals, spicy guitar leads, and magnetic personality are truly captivating. He is an accomplished musician who acquired his first music award at the age of 14, his diverse range includes country and western, rock, and high slow-simmering ballads. 

Brasstactics is Edmonton's premier brass band, delivering only the tightest jams! Serving up hot throwbacks from the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 00's, you can't help but dance and sing along.

Songbird Rising is a performing duo of twin sisters Lily and Aven. Their music is inspired by their love of uplifting themes and groovy beats. They have developed their talents in both English and Spanish, singing children's music as well as popular songs, and even a couple of originals.

MCHS Choir is provincially-recognized, winning first place at the Alberta Music Festival in 2018!

Balloon Artist Russ can create anything out of balloons, twisting hundreds of balloon animals, cartoon characters, hats, costumes, and one-of-a-kind sculptures!

Jay Flair Magic is an award winning multidisciplinary artist, who is sure to leave you on the edge of your seat! Jay's acts make use of her experiences in life and she strives to be inclusive to all who may find themselves in her audience.

The Bees Knees Facepainting provides professional quality facepainting and glitter tattoos. She feels very lucky to have endless faces to transform, and to receive so many smiles in return!
