Like us, you may be wondering what the heck a ‘Busker Festival’ is. Well, it’s a festival of Buskers, of course! 😉
A busker is a street performer that performs for gratuities. Now you know!
The Seaport Village Spring Busker Festival is the only festival of its kind in California, and one of only a few in the U.S. While hundreds of performers from across the world apply, only nine acts were selected this year to perform for a chance to win the coveted People’s Choice Award.
From sword swallowers to pogo stickers and comedic circus acts, attendees will be shocked and awed by contortionists, stuntmen, circus troupes and comedians from around the globe bringing incredible energy and unforgettable acts to San Diego’s historic waterfront.
