Guide to the Once Upon a Time Park Street Theater Festival

From 10 to 12 August in Moscow will be held the festival of street theater and carnival art "Once in the park." Theater groups from around the world will perform in Bauman’s garden, Kuzminki and Gorky’s park. The main motto of the holiday will be “Hooray fooling around!”, So all events will be exclusively comic in nature.

The same groups will perform all three days, but for each park they have prepared a unique program, so viewers should not limit themselves to going to one of the venues and it is better to walk all three days.
