They say that Laughter is the best medicine and while we’re without a stethoscope or a medical degree – we prescribe a giggle and some fresh air!

Now, as if 3-days of incredible talent wasn’t enough, it’s also worth noting that a portion of the proceeds made between Friday and Sunday will actually be donated to Queer Accessible Spaces and the Mustard Seed, which is incredible – but not all!

If you’re feeling lucky, there will also be a 50/50 draw in support of the Easter Seals Alberta’s Camp Horizon, an organization that provides outdoor experiences to individuals with medical conditions and disabilities.
