The Free Will Player’s annual Brunch of Love fundraiser is our largest fundraiser of the year. Now in our 9th year this event always brings out Edmonton’s philanthropic community to vie for beautiful and unique live and silent auction items, enjoy a delicious brunch in a gorgeous setting and be entertained by some of Edmonton’s finest performers.

We invite you to support the work of Edmonton’s largest professional outdoor theatre festivals. By making a donation, in either merchandise or gift certificates, you will be featured in our fabulous silent or live auction.

Community Benefit:

The FSF has become an annual mainstay in the cultural life of many Edmontonians. The FSF is always looking for ways to make the Festival more accessible and open to all facets of society. The FSF offers nine Pay What You Will performances, free access to any student on Sunday performances and free admission to all children under 10 years of age. If any Edmontonian wants to come and see a production at the FSF, there is no financial reason why they cannot.

Additionally, the Free Will Players are a local company that believes in the importance of supporting local businesses and individuals. We provide nine weeks of employment to over 50 individuals at a time when most theatre companies are between seasons as well as working with local businesses to produce the Festival (ie: wine suppliers, printing companies, merchandise production, etc).
