2023 Performers and Activities
Singing with Sylvia
Sylvia Chave is Saskatchewan’s queen of the swing-set scene. Sylvia charms children and their adults into wiggling and giggling together through her lively music and stage shows.
Sylvia’s original song hooks stick in your head like bubble gum in your hair. Her lyrics offer an enlightening kid’s-eye view on significant issues of this day and age such as blankie blues, napaphobia, snoring fathers and cookie-cutting techniques. She begins to answer age-old questions like: Why do bees go buzz? Is it possible to be quiet while your baby brother naps? How is it that Mama always knows best?
On stage, Sylvia is both energetic and interactive. She has a knack for keeping little ones on their feet and dancing to the beat, which is always sure to please the throngs of mama- and papa-razzi.
Danny Kazam – Magician & Puppeteer
Saskatchewan Magician and children entertainer, Danny Kazam will help you to create memories that last a life time.
Through his hilarious sense of humour, amazing magic, lovable puppets, and positive messages, children and adults alike are guaranteed to experience a show so fun it will warm hearts, tickle souls, and leave everyone wanting more.
Danny Kazam understands that for children, happy memories is one of the best gifts a child can receive, and as adults, happy memories are that little magical box we go to when we need an emotional boost. A magic button which we press play to get our mind back to a positive reset.
Jigging Demonstration with Modeste McKenzie
Modeste McKenzie will be performing a unique dance developed by the Métis people which combines the complex footwork of Native dancing with European music.
