For the 2017 festival, we have found two extremely experienced and talented stage performers, along with busking acts who will be scattered throughout downtown. The following performers will be appearing on the Main Stage, which is sponsored by Kittitas Valley Healthcare:
Sam Malcolm has amazed audiences with his energetic juggling routines and hilarious comedy in shows around the world. His show is a seamless combination of the absurd, impossible, and daring with in the moment wit and captivating original jokes. Sam goes above and beyond to entertain.
Currently living in Denver, Colorado, he spends most of his time traveling near and far to bring laughter to audiences all across the planet. Sam is an accomplished juggler, winner several awards for his abilities at the International Juggler’s Association as well as many regional competitions. He was featured on CNN”s Great Big Story in the summer of 2016. Sam has an act that will wow the entire family and have you begging for more!
Peter Irish is known the world over as perhaps the greatest juggler in the world….with his feet! Pete’s feet have won him 6 World Championships in the game of Hacky Sack, as well as an “Innovation in Juggling” award. Pete has been traveling the world for nearly 20 years performing his award winning, unique brand of variety entertainment, for venues of all types, and people of all ages. Pete is a master of several amazing and hilarious skills and arts. He has studied with monks to learn Yoga with a flaming chair balanced on his face. He has studied with kung fu masters to become a Hacky Sack world champ and juggles flaming balls of fire with his feet. Pete’s feet learned tricks in the circus above the audience on a balance board, spinning a hubcap in his mouth while juggling knives with his hands. Combining these experiences with crowd interaction and participation, crazy stunts and world champion level skill equal a fun and exciting comedy show for the whole family.
