In its 143 years, Colorado has become renowned across the country for its lively culture and colorful artistic endeavors. While a big part of this is, of course, the art exhibited in galleries and performances held on stages, Colorado’s street performers are equally integral.
Union Station Buskerfest is an annual showcase of the street performers that make every walk from sight to sight in this city an absolute joy. Come out on August 1st to 4th to see for yourself.
A Sidewalk Sight to Behold
As part of Colorado Day Weekend, which commemorates the state’s founding, Union Station Buskerfest is held yearly at the station’s Wynkoop Plaza. Here, homegrown street acts as well as reputable buskers from abroad will gather to share their unique acts.
What kind of entertainment do you fancy? Dancing, comedy, acrobatics, or something more? You’ll see all of these and so many more at the 2019 Buskerfest, with hourly shows spread across two pitches.
Dazzling Street Performances
The 2019 Buskerfest Jury has been hard at work for months curating a lineup of performers that is certain to thrill and tickle the funny bones of every spectator (young or old). Some of our favorites include:
- Tianna the Traveller
If adventure suits your tastes, you’ll really appreciate this international stuntwoman, known for her daring escapes and balancing acts.
- Peter Rabbit
Some may think that to produce a full musical outfit you need three or four different instruments. However, dynamic drummer Peter Rabbit challenges these assumptions in the best way. You won’t believe one man can make so much sound.
- Street Circus
Who says you need the big top for a big circus feel? Street Circus’s Daniel and Kimberly have traveled all over the world to showcase their freewheeling and exhilarating circus feats.
- Sam Malcolm Comedy Juggling All Star
Standup comedy and juggling all in one… what more could you want? Sam’s slapdash performances make for a unique show each and every time.
What Else is Coming?
In addition to these four acts, there’s so much more fun and entertainment to be found at the Union Station Buskerfest. Comedy, face-painting, and stilt-walking will keep kids captivated and adults on their toes. Connect on Facebook to see what else Buskerfest has in store!
