Meow Mur Makes Friends At Toronto International Buskerfest 2015
After a long summer of music and street festivals, well, sadly, summer is winding down. Toronto International Buskerfest is one of the last major festivals in the Toronto summer season. It’s a street festival that’s just slightly tied into music – and every other art form and performance art possible.
The festival is extremely lively, brilliant, and holds a little bit for every one to enjoy – young and old. This annual event draws a large number of international performers as well as tourists from around the world, as they puts their extraordinary talents on display. The integration from all walks of life, cultures, and scenes, is what makes Toronto the melting pot it is.
It’s a few days of colourful, that’s bursting at the seams with the unknown and the unexpected. There’s everything from musical acts, to silent comedy and slapstick, daredevils and magicians, high skill circus acts with a pleasantly scary mixture of clowns, contortionists, acrobats, aerialists, puppets, fire performers and some things that there are simply no words to describe – all in the name of charity for EPILEPSY Toronto.
The event took place from Aug 27-30, ranging in times throughout the days, but basically from 11 am to 11pm each day with slight variaton on Sunday. Unlike last year’s event, where there was no pre-scheduled or performance itinerary, this year they incorporated day of itenary scheduling on their website as well as a big schedule board posted up at Dundas Square. This is after all a no holds barred festival – anything goes. You can check the entire list of performers and other details at the Toronto Buskerfest website.
