From Loki tricking the ice-giants into building Asgard’s palace and wall and Anansi fooling Nyame into giving stories to the world, to Harlequino and his infamous slap-stick and Wile E. Coyote’s acme pranks, the trickster, the fool, and the sacred clown are never far from us, hiding just at the edges of things for their chance to jump out and startle us into a new way of thinking.
This April Fool’s Day, we celebrate all that is strange, subversive, and silly with this costume party and variety show dedicated to tricksters of all stripes throughout all of history!
Play a prank of your own and come in costume inspired by your favorite trickster, (whether to you that means a snake-oil salesman, or Hermes the greek god), and you’ll be automatically entered to win some amazing local treasures in our Costume Contest raffle!
Part world-class variety show, part costume party, the NIGHT CARNIVAL is your invitation to drink and dance alongside the city’s finest fringe artists, and enjoy a revue ranging from music and dance, theatre, circus acrobatics, and more.
