Happening Saturday, March 12th, the Busker Festival at Seaport Village celebrates the fascinating and unique talents of street performers who come from across the world to entertain us here in San Diego.
What is a Busker? A Busker is a street performer. Known for their unusual and comedic acts in Boston’s Faneuil Hall or standing statue-like, painted in gold on San Francisco’s Pier 39, these artists perform for tips in public venues across the globe.
Busker Fest at Seaport Village: San Diego’s Seaport Village hosts the only Busker Festival in Southern California. We bring professionals from across the country to perform their bizarre talents from sword swallowing to knife throwing to pogo stick tricks and juggling on unicycles. Throughout the two-day festival, some of the nation’s top performers fill the bayfront village drawing visitors to shop, dine and enjoy an entire day of one-of-a-kind entertainment. Free entry. Tips for performers recommended.
Getting Here: Located near the downtown San Diego business corridor, we are easily accessible from five major freeways. When traveling by public transportation, you will find us across the street from the Seaport Village Trolley Stop and a short walking distance from the Sante Fe Train Depot serviced by Amtrak and the San Diego Metro Coaster.
