The performers for the Toronto International BuskerFest are carefully selected each year to create the most dynamic and diverse line up of professional street entertainers possible. We are looking for unique, polished and professional circle acts, instillations, music acts, fly pitch and roaming performers with experience performing on the street. If you would like to be considered please complete the following application form.

Applications for circle acts should be submitted by February 15th, and up to April 1st for non-circle acts and Toronto locals. All submissions will be reviewed by our Entertainment Director, Mackenzie Muldoon, however, due to the number of applicants, we are only able to contact those who are accepted. If you are not contacted for this year’s festival, please do keep in touch for future years.

Please note that we have a limited budget to contribute to travel costs, and with larger performer groups especially, we are not able to cover costs. If you are planning on being in the area for other events, please indicate this on your application.
