The Annual Wearable art & performance Extravaganza
lands in Toronto on Friday June 16th at The 519 and Barbara Hall Park
Featuring some of the city's most innovative artists, designers and performers!
Wiggle is a wearable art and performance extravaganza that invites artists and designers to create fantasy wigs and headpieces that are then worn in the fashion element of the avant-garde variety show. Combined with innovative performances and a fashion-forward crowd, this show is an out-of-this-world event celebrating all things Wig.
The annual showcase offers creative people of all stripes to escape reality, let go and live the fantasy. Wiggle attracts a diverse crowd that has included rock stars such as Michael Stipe of R.E.M. and Blondies very own Deborah Harry. Wiggle has also boasted some of the worlds leading stars of Drag Royalty including The Lady Bunny of Wigstock fame, Miss Guy of The Toilet Boys, and Perfidia of Patricia Fields fame.
The excitement for this event to land in Toronto is growing and the cast of local talent is unique and amazing!
We have hand-picked an extremely brilliant and diverse group of performers to captivate and dazzle utilizing this unique outdoor space with performance and immersive art around every corner. This is the first time Wiggle will be held outside with Mother Nature and the addition of a Beer Garden.
Cast and Artists to be announced soon!

Wiggle started many moons ago in Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan and moved to Vancouver in 1995 along with multi-media artist collective The House of Venus with Michael Venus at the helm. Venus celebrated Wiggle's 20th year at The Vancouver Art Gallery and had been a part of the citys fashion, drag and underground scene, launching many up-and-coming artists careers.
