The White Rock Buskers Festival is back for a second year and the laughs are going to be bigger and better than ever. With a new name, it’s now the 5 Corners Buskers & Comedy Festival, and an added focus on comedy, get ready to laugh all day long in White Rock on Saturday, September 28.
During the day (noon – 4:30pm), top quality street performers will bring free, family-friendly thrills to busking stops across the 5 Corners and Uptown areas of White Rock, and at night, indoor venues come alive with some of the region’s most hilarious comedy acts at ticketed performances for the grown-ups.
With over 30 busker performances scheduled to take place throughout the day, you’re guaranteed to find something to inspire and entertain. From magicians, jugglers, and contortionists to an organ grinder, hilarious clowns and wildly musical performers. (A schedule of the daytime events can be found here.)
