Toronto Buskerfest 2013 – Reasons Why You Should Join The Fun

Downtown Toronto, on Yonge Street (between College and Queen Streets) is closed for Canada’s most family-friendly summer festival, the Toronto Buskerfest 2013–a gathering of all things buskers/busking–in support of Epilepsy Toronto. A total of 56 buskers from around the world congregate to give Torontonians a kind of summer entertainment that would cost you much when you see them in theaters and amusement parks.

Buskerfest appeals to people from all walks of life. Children will be awed and adults will be charmed. From silent impersonations to acrobatic stunts, to fire-breathing and juggling, this festival will surely hold your breath.

So, check out Toronto Buskerfest 2013 on August 22-25! Be enthralled and discover the wonders of being childlike again. Be entertained, smile as much as you can and you’ll realize your wrinkles are disappearing.
