Parade of Lost Souls: The WILD!


Saturday, October 29, 2016 - 7:00pm


The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret proudly presents the Parade of Lost Souls: The Wild! This year we celebrate The Wild, where we invite you to follow your instincts and transform yourself into a 'wild thing.'

​We share this landscape with creatures of all sort, both the animal kingdom of our wild west coast, and the fantastical creatures we've seen in our stories and our dreams. Let the creatures of story and dreams come alive...perform a wild feat. Bring a wild invention. Dress up as your favourite local species. Parade your inner animal through the streets! Together, we will explore what is useful about our wild roots and reunite with our greater family of creatures for this time when the barriers between worlds are thin.


Returning, as in tradition on Saturday closest to All Hallows' Eve, the Parade of Lost Souls will take place on October 29, 2016. In usual fashion, the final parade route is kept a closely guarded secret - revealed only at the stroke of midnight the night before. Keep checking into our website and social media feeds for updates and other exciting surprises along the way!


After parade, the party continutes at the Lost Souls After-Party, this year at The Legion on Commercial Drive. This party WILL sell out, so get your tickets early! You can't get them at the door, so buy online at or at a Parade Info Booth. 19+. No minors admitted.


Join in the revelry early and prepare yourself for the parade by participating in one of our many artist-led community workshops in dance, music, art and costuming. Find workshop descriptions, times, locations and volunteer opportunities on our website at

Join the journey into finding and releasing your inner wild thing! Get dressed up, create a species, bring reality and imagination together, and march with us in celebration of one another. Let us free ourselves at the Parade of Lost Souls!

Come for the workshops! Come for the Parade! Come to the After-Party! Join us as we celebrate the cycles of dark and light, love and loss, life and death.
