Toronto BuskerFest 2018

Continuing in Woodbine Park from August 30 to September 3, 2018 the busker festival has expanded to fill the large park in the Beach area. Food trucks, a Mac & Cheese Festival, stages and performance areas as well as a midway bring in thousands of people to catch the magic that happens when street performers captivate their audiences.

Local buskers mix with buskers from around the world as they join the talent making stops at the large 4-day festival. From the BuskerFest website, "What many spectators don't realize is that this world class festival not only supports a local charitable organization, Epilepsy Toronto, it is actually organized and run by us as our largest fund raiser of the year. "We wanted to create a unique and memorable experience that brought epilepsy out of the shadows and into the public eye; an entertainment extravaganza that supports a greater purpose in aid of people with epilepsy and their families," says Geoff Bobb, Executive Director of Epilepsy Toronto. "One in every 100 Canadians experiences some form of epilepsy and this amazing festival is the single-largest fundraiser for Epilepsy Toronto and the largest epilepsy event in the universe!”
