Metropolis Winter Festival

Metropolis is a unique winter festival conceptualized by Giuseppe. This event was based on cold climate construction technology that was pioneered in Edmonton with the construction of the Professional Building completed in 1961. Four pavilions built from scaffolding wrapped with shrink-wrap were erected on Sir Winston Churchill Square. These heated and architectural designed structures featured a variety of activities, which included an art display, fashion show and sale, aerial trapeze performance by Firefly Theatre and food fair. The festival ran for seven weeks and took two months to erect and one month to dismantle. It is the largest and longest running festival to be staged on Sir Winston Churchill Square.
