The annual celebration of street art and entertainment returns
- Where: Downtown Lawrence
- Cost: Free
- Age limit: All ages
Amid the historic and funky shops and restaurants of downtown Lawrence, you will witness the crazy and creative acts, oddities, and performances of the Lawrence Busker Festival. Bold and Brazen, Buskers are incredible street performers who provide jaw-dropping entertainment, and when the clock strikes five in the evening August 24th, these Buskers will come out to play. New talent will appear at the fest this year, with The Pogo Dudes and their high flying tricks, Jonathan Burns the comedy contorionist and Bobby Maverick doing an incredible upside down straight jacket escape. Returning to our streets will be Thom Sellectomy, a comedy sword swallower, Cate Flaherty, a female acrobat and juggler from Boulder and Voler the Arial Artists.
This year's offering of Freaks, Geeks and the Unique include Strong Women, Sword Swallowers, Fire Eaters and Flaming jugglers, Acrobatic Dancers, Hula Hoop Artists, Arial Acts and oddball music too wild to define. We will once again make it all happen on the streets in downtown Lawrence in one of the most wonderful weekends this city will ever have.
