Get ready: Buskers 2024 is coming

The streets of Halifax and Dartmouth will come alive with the return of the International Busker Festival from July 31 to August 5, 2024. From acrobats to magicians, the festival offers a unique blend of entertainment for all ages.

Last year’s event attracted an estimated 250,000 attendees and generated around $20 million in event spend.

In 2023, the festival expanded its footprint with the addition of the Seaport Busker Performance Stage, featuring hourly shows and the Glow Party Family Fun Zone.

This year promises even more excitement with new stages and a diverse lineup of international and local performers.
