Upcoming World Busker's Festival - Not To Be Missed

The World Buskers Festival starts next week (Jan. 21-31). The festival is eleven days of 450 live shows of street, circus, and comedy style performances. Now in its 17th year, the event offers an international line-up of talent that includes 44 of the world’s best acts from the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Japan, Israel, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand.

Many of the shows are free to the public and performed throughout the day in central city public spaces such as Cathedral and Victoria Squares, at the Arts Centre, as well as in locations in New Brighton and Sumner. Late night performances (8:30-10:30pm) ask for a nominal donation of $5-$10 and will be held at The Beford, on the corner of Bedford Row and Madras Street.
