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!

Did you know? The Toronto Zoo isn’t just the only Zoo in Canada to have Giant pandas but we also have Sumatran orangutans! Check out our special orangutan enrichment interpretive station, artifacts, and artwork painted by one of our talented orangutans. Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered with the wild population experiencing habitat loss of 80% half of that in the last 20 years caused by palm oil cultivation, logging and mining. Join us in the Indo-Malaya Pavilion for a special Orangutan Keeper Talk at 1:00 pm daily and find out how YOU can commit to conservation efforts to help the extremely endangered Sumatran orangutans at home and abroad.
