Come See Us

Busker festival   Busker Ball   


Now in its 9th year, the Lawrence Busker Festival is the area's largest gathering of street performers in the area. Come join us for three days of family fun with some of the most talented freaks, geeks, artists and musicians around.

And while our festival may be large, planning your visit is easy. Check out our performance schedule to make sure you don't miss your favorite acts. And for an even more up close and personal experience, come check out Busker Ball on the Thursday before our big weekend.

Be Sure to show up for the Great Escape! It's a one time performance of Houdini's inverted hanging straight jacket escape. Bobby Maverick will be suspended 2 stories in the air from a burning rope and attempt to escape from a straight jacket. Will he do it in time? Come see the only performance at 5:30 pm on Friday.

If you want to raise your kids right you got to get them to the Busker Workshops for kids on Saturday Morning. Here they will learn the life long skills of juggling, magic and balloon animals. With these skills they can begin a good busking career!
