Buskerfest 

  • IX Art Park 522 2nd St SE Charlottesville United States (map)

CALLING ALL BUSKERS!

Street musicians, magicians, acrobats, comedians and performers of all shapes and sizes. You are invited to the first IX Buskerfest in Charlottesville, VA. Anybody play the saw?

From noon until 4pm, we'll have four "stages" for street performers at the corners of our park. 32 half-hour slots. Email info@ixartpark.com to secure a spot. No fee. Collect tips from festival goers. (We'll sweeten your pot with the first $5.)

$200 PRIZE for BEST BUSKER.
(Chosen by popular vote.)

Public notice: the event is FREE. But please bring some bills to tip the musicians generously - and support all levels of culture in our beautiful city.

Performers: Bring your own amplification. We have a few outlets around the park. But don't get too loud and drown out the other buskers (we'll be making sure everyone plays fair). Pros are welcome - but bring your acoustic game.

Also at the park, we'll have food trucks and beverages. Plus our usual assortment of art, kids running amok and general community mixology.

And we encourage you to enjoy the provisions at Brazos Tacos, the North American Sake Brewery and Three Notch'd Brewing Company.
