Featuring an international lineup of artists, this extravaganza aspires to cultivate a tradition of live street art and performance in the Mile-High City. Conceived by award-winning preservationist Dana Crawford, the Union Station Buskerfest will enliven Union Station’s fantastic public plaza and introduce Denver audiences of all ages to skilled performers specializing in the living traditions of busking and street theater.
This event is open to the public and there is no admission fee. Buskers (or Street Performers) will ask for donations at the end of their shows. This is how Buskers make a living–traveling the world bringing entertainment to people of all walks of life–so if you can afford a tip, please be generous. Proceeds from select Union Station vendors will benefit Arts Street, an organization who encourages high-risk youth to channel their artistic talents into positive activity.
