While it is free to attend the Kamloops International Buskers Festival, the performers do work for gratuities! Street performing is one of the most honest forms of entertainment - it allows you to watch the show, and then decide how much to tip for all that laughter and amazement. Each performer welcomes tips at the end of their performance which goes directly to that performer or act. This is how they earn their living as they travel the world to perform at street festivals.


FOOD VILLAGE AT RIVERSIDE PARKJoin us in a culinary adventure at the International Buskers Festival. We will be featuring many of our local food trucks to provide festival goers with amazing options! A list of our amazing food vendors will be coming soon.
