WHAT IS A BUSKER FESTIVAL?

Buskers are gutsy street performers. Theatre in the street. Comedians, contortionists, magicians and mimes, sword-swallowers and human statures. Jugglers, escape artists and acrobats. Each performer vying to out perform the last, for a toss of a coin in the hat.

The buskers will rotate around Port Credit throughout the weekend to different performance spots — also known as pitches. Expect to experience side-splitting comedy, eye-popping acrobatics and mind-bending daredevil stunts!

Now a three-day event with over 40 professional Buskers, 8 staging areas, 4 spectacular fire shows and lots of “surprise fly pitches” throughout Port Credit – not to mention the incredible Xtreme Finale on Sunday with every Busker performing one big show!

A full weekend of family fun where you decide what to pay. Tips are strongly encouraged!
