This year’s festival promises to be spontaneous, hilarious and contain the broadest range of performers of any Street Performer Festival in North America. Equally fun-loving and diverse, are their visitors. It is the festival’s objective to be the most accessible and inclusive street festival in the city and it seems they are having some success in doing just that.

At the BuskerAccess Tent, visitors are provided with assistance by one of our accessibility volunteers. They are easy to spot by the accessibility symbol on their shirts.
