 Buskers Acrobats Seaport Village
You see them all over Europe — though sometimes New York City’s Time Square is bursting with them, too. I’m referring to the street performers called Buskers! For the last nine years, San Diego has had a festival to showcase these incredible acts and you can see them all at Seaport Village.
Read on to plan an exciting day watching contortionists, fire-breathers, stilt-walkers, and many other rare and exotic feats performed right before your eyes.
Performers from around the world head to San Diego’s waterfront March 7-8
“Seaport Village is welcoming the most colorful, entertaining and eccentric street performers to its annual Spring Busker Festival. The event occurs Saturday, March 7 and Sunday, March 8, 2015, with acts ranging from fire breathers to contortionists, and everything in between. This free festival runs from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. each day and brings spectacular 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. Seaport Village’s Spring Busker Festival is the only festival of its kind in California, and brings 10 to 12 acts to perform throughout the outdoor waterfront shopping, dining and entertainment district.

“Seaport Village is home to a special busker scene all year round,” said Seaport Village General Manager Terry Hall. “Buskers add a lively energy and provide unforgettable, interactive acts that entertain all ages. We are thrilled to bring in the best buskers from across the globe to San Diego’s waterfront.”
Come nightfall, Seaport Village will let performers loose for Buskers After Dark on Saturday, March 7 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 Villages’ shops, restaurants and eateries will offer special sales 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.”
