The Downtown Victoria Buskers Festival (DVBF) is a free five-day family-friendly community festival.  Starting Thursday, August 30th until Monday, September 3rd, 2018, Victoria will become a hub of busking talent with performers coming from far and wide! Dotted around the downtown core will be “Pitch Stops” where buskers will entertain and inspire.  With a ton of family-friendly entertainment, people of all ages are guaranteed to have a good time!

The Downtown Victoria Buskers Festival is committed to being a low impact festival.  The 2017 DVBF was a Carbon Neutral Festival and we are committed to keeping it green for 2018.
