Buskerfest Toronto 2011


Street Art at its finest; Busterfest Toronto, took place August 25 & 26


Like a child at their first circus show, I stood mouth gabbing at all the wonders.
There's more...


The Space Cowboy ~ An Australian Dare Devil


Dazzling audiences in over 30 countries with up to 20,000 onlookers. 


No party is complete without "The King". 
I just don't want to think how long it took to put this makeup on. I'm getting itchy just thinking of it! The Silver Elvis robotic statue, is the creation of Peter Jarvis a Toronto performance artist.



The streets were crawling with creepy Jesters


The eloquent and flexible Australia contortionist "Bendy Em"


There was also the sweet, strum of violins



The sidewalks never looked better, graced with the talents of the chalk-master's works.


Front Street never smelled better either!


And would any event I attend ever be complete without me scoping out the pooches!


It may be over, but I am already dreaming about next year!

thanks for sharing this - great pics.
OK - I'm going ask a dumb question which has the answer yes, I think.
Do the buskers still expect a donation even though it is a festival?

Miss Kodee said...

Thank you everyone!

@lisleman At this particular festival the entrance a donation was hoped to be given upon entering for Epilepsy. The artist came and performed regardless if the audience "donated" for the show. I think from what I saw most opted to donate to some of the acts.
