2017 Walkerville Buskerfest
Be amazed as international performers bring spectacular daredevil feats to the streets. Fun for everyone with hands on activities, music, delicious food and more at the 2017 Walkerville Buskerfest.
LiUNA 625 presents an eye popping, jaw dropping experience like no other. From Australia the Circus Firemen juggle flaming torches while balanced atop ladders. Also from Down Under is Reuben DotDotDot who defies death with a smile from 20′ in the air. Silver Starlets dazzle and delight with the greatest of ease on…you guessed it, their Flying Trapeze! Englishman John Hicks is an International Man of Artistry and with a rockin soundtrack paints masterpieces with a blur of energy. Energy and excitement abounds when Street Circus hits town – – this couple of daring acrobats dare you to keep up with a jam packed set of stunts. Coming all the way from the west coast is Checkerboard Guy the human cartoon stuntman/clown. Windsor’s own Fair and Honest Magician Wayne Tellier makes an encore appearance at the 2017 Walkerville Buskerfest with plenty of tricks up his sleeve, and you better look waaaaaay UP! Stilt Guys bringing bigger smiles and higher high fives than ever before.
You too can join the fun and run away with the circus courtesy of the Windsor Circus School. Play all day in the park and help create a giant Chalk Mural on the street. Young rescue heroes can take the Jr F.I.R.E Challenge a super fun obstacle course, and then the whole family can catch all the action at any of the extended patios with refreshments and plenty of live music.
Sneak Peek Preview at Walkerville Theatre Thursday night, Busk After Dusk late night shows Friday and Saturday at Walkerville Brewery and accessible indoor Relaxed Performances too. Don’t miss the Night Parades and the Grand Finale on Sunday benefitting charity partner the Arts Council.
Cost: FREE and Buskers “Pass the Hat”
