Description

Clay & Paper Theatre presents the 18th annual NIGHT OF DREAD, an evening of fearful pageantry, revels and mockery on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28TH in DUFFERIN GROVE PARK. At this much loved community event, Torontonians are invited to call on, mock and banish their private and collective fears through parade and pageantry, music and masquerade, dance and a devilishly good party.

DRESS CODE
Black & White & Dreadful

EVENT SCHEDULE
Parade Assembly - 4pm to 6pm
Parade - 6pm to 7pm
Fear of the Year Scenario - 7pm
Mockery (Post Scenario Events) - 7:15pm to 9:00pm
Live Band at the Music Tent - 7:45pm

Participants gather for the parade in Dufferin Grove Park from 4 to 6pm where Clay & Paper Theatre puppets and masks are made available for revelers to wear. After the hour-long procession, with its towering puppets, fire spinners and an assortment of marching bands, all participants return to the park where they are treated to a theatrical spectacle showdown with the “Fear of the Year” for 2017.

After-scenario ceremonial events include a shrine garden in 'The Valley of Remembrance' to those who have passed, the Small Fears bonfire, a waltz with the Death dancers, and an opportunity to eat traditional Pan de Muerto (Bread of the Dead) baked fresh in Dufferin Grove’s own park bake ovens. The dreadful night then swings into a boisterous closing performance and dance party with a local Toronto band.
