Downtown Toronto will play host to the 15th Annual Buskerfest - a festival filled with street performers from around the world. Buserkfest will run from Thursday August 21 to Sunday August 24 on Yonge Street (from Queen to College Streets) which will be turned into a pedestrian street festival.
Expect to see over 160 buskers in 65+ acts - making it the biggest Buskerfest to date. Admission is by donation to Epilepsy Toronto while buskers retain proceeds from “the hat” passed after their performances. Buskerfest runs from:
Thursday noon - 11pm
Friday noon - 11pm
Saturday 11am - 11pm
Sunday 11am - 8pm
