15th AnnualScotiabank BuskerFest

15th AnnualScotiabank BuskerFest in support of Epilepsy Toronto.

Announces New and Returning Acts from around the Globe!

AUGUST 21-24, 2014 throughout the Downtown Yonge Neighbourhood.

Epilepsy Toronto is pleased to present their signature fundraising event, Scotiabank BuskerFest. In partnership with the Downtown Yonge BIA, they are proud to announce an outstanding roster of international and Canadian acts, both new and returning, for the 15th edition of Toronto’s international street performers festival. Scotiabank BuskerFest runs Thursday, August 21 to Sunday, August 24 throughout the Downtown Yonge Neighbourhood, from Queen to College Streets and surrounding areas (including Trinity Square Park and Yonge-Dundas Square).

An estimated one-and-a-half million spectators attended the festival last year – an astounding success for its first year along the downtown Yonge Street corridor. Organizers are anticipating at least as many this year, as more buskers than ever before – over 120 of the best street performers in over 50 acts from across the country and around the globe – bring their world-class talents to Canada’s most populous city.

Buskers retain proceeds from “the hat” passed after their performances except for shows on the Scotiabank Stage in Yonge-Dundas Square: for the first time ever, each performing act will be doing one performance on this stage over the course of the weekend, and all proceeds will go to Epilepsy Toronto!
