General Questions

Our event presents two running busker performances stages presenting hourly 40-minute shows plus a music stage featuring local talent from the Moncton area. We also have dedicated Busk Stops for local music performers in the downtown core. It’s three days of non-stop fun!

The festival is free-to-attend however following shows acts will encourage a tip for their hat from audience goers. While we assist participants with travel and lodgings, their entire income is from audience tips. When it comes to tipping, simply tip what you can afford. What is great about our festival is that it is available to everyone, regardless of economic standing.

We hope to begin distributing Buskers Festival programs by June 15th. They will be available across downtown, online on this site and at the information booth located on festival grounds.

You sure can. While we have concluded our busker stage selections, we continue to welcome local musicians for our music stage as well as those interested in performing at one of our downtown Busk Stops. Apply here.
