Since 1991, the Dell'Arte Mad River Festival has brought together performers and audience members from "around the world and down the block" for performances of theatre, music, comedy, storytelling, clown, puppetry and more. 

Hosted in Dell'Arte's three theatres in Blue Lake--The Carlo Theatre, The Rooney Amphitheatre, and our gospel tent-- plus other venues in the area, the MRF has presented troupes from Brazil, Russia, Europe, Canada and across the United States, as well as top solo performers from around the world.
