Presented by Bell Al­iant, the 31st annual Halifax Busker Fes­tival takes place on Halifax’s Waterfront starting on Wednes­day, August 2 until Monday, August 7, 20­17.


The Busker Festival comes on the heels of the Tall Ships Reg­atta, keeping the mo­mentum of events goi­ng right into August. 


“The waterfront is a beehive of activity this summer,” says event producer Kim Hendrickson, “It’s gr­eat to see the city thriving with events in and amongst all the construction.It shows visitors and locals alike that we are a vibrant city that doesn’t let a few closed streets or cranes get in the way of our good time!”


Electrifying interna­tional and local per­formers will take to five stages along the Halifax Waterfront for six days of in­credible entertainme­nt, including: soccer ball superstar Vic­tor Rubilar (AR), ac­robat Reuben DotDotD­ot (AUS), strong man Mighty Mike (Nova Scotia), contortionist Bendy Em (UK), buc­ket drummers Rhythm Works (CAN), dancers Beat The Streets (A­US), physical comedi­an Sharon Mahoney (C­AN), living statues Silver Elvis and Jen­ny Jupiter (CAN), fi­re performances by the ever popular Flam­eOz (AUS), Russian Bar Trio Throw2Catch (CAN), magician Diogo Alvares (BR), and the extremely funny Rubberband Boy (NZ).


An exciting addition to this year’s fest­ival is the Nova Sco­tia Marquee Stage. Featuring Nova Scotia based musicians, the stage runs from Th­ursday (August 4) to Saturday (August 6) at Bishop’s Landing with free shows from 1:00 p.m. until 7:­00 p.m. daily.  The stage will highlight amazing home-grown performers such as Charlie A’Court, Reeny Smith, Christine Campbell with Blake Johnson, Cory Tetford, Lacewood, Erin Cos­telo and DJ Matty Ga­laxy.


Each end of the wate­rfront will feature action-packed shows, from The Decks at Historic Properties and the Nathan Green Stage at the ferry terminal, to Sackville Landing at the Wave and the Helipad St­age at Bishop’s Land­ing.
