Come one, come all, and wiggle your spirit fingers as various street performers juggle, dance, and contort their bodies all for your viewing entertainment. Welcome to the World Buskers Festival. Once a year, Christchurch features a hyper active line up of ‘old school’ and ‘new school’ acts.
Grip the edge of your seats as 30 street acts from nine countries pump your eye sockets full of talented thrills for the whole family to enjoy. Whether you prefer watching a master of Yo-Yos, a world-renowned sword swallower, or an assortment of stand up comedy shows that will make you howl till your stomach aches, this festival is sure to deliver if you just ‘take it to the streets.’
Every good thing always comes with a catch, and you can experience all of this entertainment for a tiny fee of zero dollars. Once again, I repeat…FREE! You are encouraged to leave a generous donation, but I doubt you will have any complaints after you’ve enjoyed 11 days of festivities spanning from morning to night.
If you’ve never been to a buskers festival of any kind, I encourage you to find one and get your entertainment street cred up. It’s a great way to show some love for these performing artists.
