Hello! We are Toronto Clown Alley and Family Entertainers Inc. TCAFE for short!

We are a place of learning, sharing and growing.

Founded in 1985 as The Toronto Clown Alley, we have always been a place where clowns, magicians, jugglers, balloon sculptors, face painters, musicians, story tellers and pretty well anyone who is interested in children’s entertainment can come together to gather and learn.

Our group is all about sharing and learning. ​ We encourage all our members to bring that “pay it forward” attitude with them to all our gatherings.

At a general meeting, lecture or at a casual jam, we encourage everyone to network with other like minded people and to constantly expand and refine their skills. ​ Remember, the journey of knowledge never ends.

We were renamed as TCA Family Entertainers in 2014 and incorporated in 2017 to reflect the diverse makeup of our membership. Our roots are in clowning, but our hearts are in family entertainment.

Never been to one of our meetings? Not yet a clown or family entertainer but simply curious?

All are welcome to come and see what we are all about. Simply contact us and let us know you’re interested in attending one of our meetings.

While we do allow children on an invitation basis to our jams and to some of our general meetings, membership in TCAFE is limited to those 16 years of age and up.
