Once again, the Grande Prairie Street Festival was an incredible success for our community.  Here at the Stanford Hotel Grande Prairie, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the organizers, spectators, hundreds of volunteers and of course fabulous performers who made this year’s event one of the most memorable yet.  Check out these great photos of a few of this year’s unbelievable performances.

In spite of the fact that the weather was a little, shall we say, ‘iffy’, the festival was a great success drawing in over 21,000 people from the surrounding region and across the country.  A few locals noted that this time of year we often receive extreme heat in Grande Prairie, so the cool temperatures were actually quite a blessing, especially for the at times heavily costumed performers. 

Stanford Hotel Grande Prairie, proud supporter & sponsor of the GP Street Festival

The final day of the festival drew the largest crowds for the Grand Finale Circle, which was packed with people who witnessed an exciting collaboration put on by all the festival’s performers.  Performers at the festival were genuinely pleased with the prairie generosity they received from locals and visitors alike in the support they received for their artistic practice.  Surely, many will be back next year!
Here at the Stanford Hotel Grande Prairie, we were pleased to do our part by sponsoring this exciting community event as well as providing accommodation for several of the talented performers who graced us with their presence.  We look forward to sponsoring this event in coming years and to many more exciting celebrations.  Viva the Street Festival!
