Downtown Victoria Buskers Festival

Downtown Victoria Buskers Festival
July 11th - July 16th, 2017
Times Vary - full festival schedule to follow

Downtown Victoria Buskers Festival is a free six-day family friendly festival from Tuesday, July 11th until Sunday, July 16th.  Victoria will become a hub of busking talent with performers coming from far and wide - with a good dose of some home-grown local talent thrown in! Dotted around the downtown core will be "Pitch Stop" pop up locations where buskers will entertain and inspire.

The Downtown Victoria Buskers Festival is presented by the Downtown Victoria Business Association along with supporting partners Tourism Victoria, Greater Victoria Harbour Agency, and the Hotel Association of Greater Victoria.

Headlining Artists

The Downtown Victoria Buskers Festival will welcome for their first time to Canada, award winning break dance crew Beat the Streets from Sydney, Australia. Beat the Streets started busking in Sydney, Australia and stay connected to their street performance roots. More headliners will be announced over the coming weeks.
