The Buskers are coming ….the Buskers are coming! Get ready for two days of jaw-dropping entertainment at the 14th Annual Port Credit Buskerfest.
“We’re takin’ it to the streets”, with 6 scheduled performance areas and tons of “spontaneous” acts, statues, musicians and strolling performances, all on the streets of Port Credit!
The Buskers come from far and wide, and this year they are thrilled to welcome performers from Venezuela, Portugal, UK, Australia, Mexico, USA and many parts of Canada.
Don’t miss non-stop shows Friday Aug 16, 7pm – 11pm and Saturday Aug 17, 1pm – 11pm located on the side streets adjacent to Lakeshore Road, from Stavebank to Mohawk.
Friday Night will feature the ever-popular FIRE SHOW at The Elmwood Pitch, with collaborative performances by fan favorite Zap Circus (AUS) and Incendia Motus (CAN).
On Saturday at 1pm, come out to support the Xtreme Charity show where all the performers will perform in one BIG show. All proceeds will go to Epilepsy South Central Ontario.
As always Buskerfest will offer a wide range of talented performers showing off incredible feats of danger, daring tricks and a whole lot of comedy. One of the many new performers Buskerfest are excited to have, is Pete Anderson. This unstoppable Brit has spent two decades engaging audiences with his witty and uniquely theatrical style while making people laugh the world over. Port Credit Buskerfest will be Pete’s “first ever” performance in Canada. Along with Pete comes Katay Santos, The Flyin’ Hawaiian, Lukas Stark, Cartoonette, and Incendia Motus, all Port Credit first timers. Also invited back are fan favorites, The USA Breakdancers, Pancho Libre, Kobbler Jay, Scott Jackson, and Zap Circus. It’s going to be a great show and all the stops have been pulled out!
The kids won’t want to miss The Papousek Buskerkidz Zone at Port Street Market. Featuring face painters, balloon sculptures, bubbles, dance, painting, live characters & hourly musical performances and workshops… just for them.
While you are here, don’t forget to Visit Artrageous, the NEW interactive art area on Brant Ave. Unleash your creative side by assisting with some of the collaborative art projects presented by the local artists. Paint, paper, and lots of unique ways to add colour and creativity to your day!
