Annual Downtown St. John’s Buskers Festival

August 4, 5 & 6, 2023


An Event for The Whole Family

The Annual Downtown St. John’s Buskers Festival is a highly anticipated event for the whole family.

With three stages set within the downtown core, you’re welcome to move between each one to see a number of performances, which occur every hour from noon to 9 pm daily (last show starts at 8:00 pm and finishes at 9:00 pm).

Watch as jugglers, magicians, acrobats, comedians, and plenty of performers we couldn’t even begin to define, show you what they can do!


Three busking stages:

#1 Fun Zone – Water Street east at Solomon’s Lane (same parking lot as Reel Downtown Outdoor Movie Screenings)

#2 Scotia Center/Water Street Pedestrian Mall 235 Water Street

#3 Duckworth Street East Parking Lot – Duckworth Street east across from Haymarket Square & the War Memorial

Stay tuned for the 2023 Performers!
