Call For Buskers

Calling ALL BUSKERS! Do YOU have what it takes to perform in our 2016 Spring Busker Festival?

We are on the hunt for the world’s most exciting street performers to participate in our annual event taking place March 5-6 of 2016.

You can submit your entry form here to be considered.  Deadline to submit is December 1, 2015.

For those of you not in the busker know, are you wondering what a busker is?  Well, let me tell you.  Popular across the globe, buskers are public street performers known for their unusual and awe-inspiring acts. San Francisco’s Pier 39, Boston’s Faneuil Hall and London’s Covent Gardens are locations known to have vibrant busker scenes that showcase these incredible street artists.

Seaport Village’s Spring Busker Festival is the only one of its kind in California, and brings 10 to 12 acts to perform throughout the outdoor waterfront shopping, dining and entertainment district. This will be the tenth year for the festival!  We will also host an evening event, Buskers After Dark, featuring a DJ, food and drink specials and multiple busker acts best suited for those over 18. 

So, if you or someone you know has a totally awesome MUST-SEE act, please apply now. Reminder, the deadline to submit is December 1, 2015!

Looking forward to reviewing all of the candidates and putting on another spectacular Busker Festival!
