Kelowna Buskers

An entertaining street-side experience

Kelowna welcomes and encourages professional and amateur, local and touring, Buskers to perform their “street style” art form.  Buskers entertain people through mime, physical comedy, juggling, puppetry, playing an instrument or singing.

The former Kelowna Buskers Program is moving to a new informal model.  This means Buskers do not require a permit, but are welcome to perform at one of the existing “Busk Stops” located along Kelowna’s lakefront walkways, shopping areas, and Cultural District.
