Welcome to the 2019 Dundas International Buskerfest!
Leave the world behind and step into our charming downtown. Enjoy delicious treats and boutique fashion while performers from around the world bring JOY! Graceful tightrope walkers and dexterous jugglers, whirling hula-hoops and flying Chinese vases, the sounds of drums and flips and spy music fill King Street, just for you. We welcome performers from across Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Croatia, the Netherlands and Venezuela. Hamilton-area musicians and roving performers bring visual surprises and toe-tapping music around every corner. Keep an eye out for roving vines! Rope-walker Cirkatension blooms to the music of the 1920s, and Rhythm Works driving percussion gets everyone moving… Masters of manipulation Katay Santos and Jack Flash entice audiences with smooth moves and wicked humor… World hula-hooping sensation Lisa Lottie and contortionist Flexy Lexy dazzle you with physical feats testing the limits of human achievement… Grannies? Spies? Who are they really? Enjoy the mystery (and plungers!) of Her Majesty’s Secret Circus and the high-flying antics of the Stupendous Silver Sisters. The acrobats of Quatuor Stomp mix timing, precision, and perfect teamwork to perform brilliant and hilarious stunts! Enjoy our FAMILY FUN STOP! Located at Pitch #5, this stage features all family-friendly acts and is located next to the kids’ activity area with games, juggling, hula-hooping and just hanging around. We’re proud to bring world-class professional artists with incredible skills and outrageous comedy to the Dundas Buskerfest. Our festival—your festival!—actively seeks performers who represent our diverse audience. Do you know an act—local, regional or international—you’d love to see here? Let us know at the info booth or on social media. If you have a great time, tell your friends—share Buskerfest and share your JOY! – Allison Williams, Artistic Director
