Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Hundreds of buskers (street performers) will gather at The Forks Market on Friday, May 2 and Saturday, May 3, 2014 for the 2014 Buskers Festival. Buskers from all around the city will audition and compete for a 2014 coveted Busk Pass. It should be a lot of fun to watch!
What is a Busk Pass?
Street performers at The Forks must have a Busk Pass to perform at designated Busk Stops. There is an annual audition (Buskers Festival) that takes places to give performers the opportunity to purchase a Busk Pass. Only those who pass the audition can purchase a Busk Pass. This should be tons of fun to watch! Every Busker candidate will be given approximately 5 minutes to perform for the audience and the judges.
Regular Busk Stop Fees:
- $10.00 Audition Fee (GST included) – payable before auditioning
- $40.00 Annual License Fee (GST included)
- $60.00 Annual License Fee (GST included) if selling preauthorized merchandise
Interested in auditioning? There may be spots still open. Head to the Buskers Festival page for more information. You’ll need to fill out a audition booking form and return it to the 202 Office. You will then be notified by email or phone on your confirmation date & time. [THEFORKS]
