7th Annual Buskers’ Bash

Busker's Bash logo

Buskers’ Bash is an annual event that celebrates the best local talent from solo
musicians to fire-tossing jugglers and every other type of street performer in between!

This year we had over 45 busker’s to sign up. This eclectic crew of sidewalk artists, showed up and showed out by performing in front of participating downtown businesses. The night was full of laughter, great music, and fun!
