Fishbowl Festival of Community, Food, Arts and Culture is a DIY, community sourced festival that happens annually from February 20th to March 20th in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario.
The Festival showcases local Sault Ste Marie talent, ideas, and resources for a diverse month-long celebration that offers everything from dance parties to supper clubs, film screenings to pop-ups in a range of venues across the city. Fishbowl strives to get folks to come out, meet their neighbours, participate and share resources, ideas and skills. The Festival also works to present and promote safe(r) and more accessible spaces and events in our community.
Last year, The Fishbowl Festival hosted 25 events in 16 venues, engaged with over 30 artists and saw over 700 participants come out to enjoy all that was on offer. This year, we are hoping to grow the festival by holding more events, adding venues and increasing accessibility.
