Seaport Village is welcoming the most colorful, entertaining and eccentric street performers to its annual Spring Busker Festival.
On Saturday, March 5 and Sunday, March 6, 2016, fire breathers, sword swallowers, jugglers and contortionists will return for another spectacular weekend of live street entertainment.
The FREE festival runs from noon to 6 p.m. each day bringing incredible energy and unforgettable acts to the cobblestone streets of San Diego’s waterfront.
Popular across the globe, buskers are public street performers known for their unusual and awe-inspiring street acts. The Seaport Village Spring Busker Festival is the only festival of its kind in California, bringing 10 to 12 acts to perform throughout the outdoor waterfront shopping, dining and entertainment district.
“The festival gets bigger and better each year, so we’re anticipating a phenomenal set of performers this spring,” said Seaport Village General Manager Terry Hall. “We’re thrilled to bring the best buskers from across the globe back to the San Diego waterfront for another year of amazing acts.”
Come nightfall, Seaport Village will let performers loose for Buskers After Dark on Saturday, March 5 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. This untamed show will feature a DJ, food and drink specials, and busker acts best suited for those over 18.
Adding to the Spring Busker Festival flair, Seaport Village’s shops, restaurants and eateries will offer specials from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the festival. While the Spring Busker Festival is free of charge, all buskers will be accepting tips.
