The Freaks, Geeks, Oddballs, and Fools will be back in full force as the Busker Festival returns to downtown Lawrence, KS for its 8th year. This year the producers have moved it to the more weather friendly dates of May 29 thru 31st. The new dates allow the Busker Festival to partner with the funky art car parade Art Tougeau and the monthly Final Friday art event. It promises to be a bigger event with more stages and no oppressive August heat.
Lawrence Busker Festival showcases over 20 jaw-dropping acts on the downtown streets of New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Buskers, incredible street performers, will do their best to shock and awe in almost every nook and cranny of downtown Lawrence. Sword Swallowers, Flaming Jugglers, Acrobatic Dancers, and Fire Eaters have blown audiences away in the past, and this year looks to be no different. This year’s artist line up includes a lot of new acts coming for the first time to Lawrence. While these acts have performed all over the world as buskers it is their first time in the middle of America.
