16th Annual Toronto International BuskerFest for Epilepsy
The 16th edition of Toronto International BuskerFest for Epilepsy presented by Scotiabank – the largest of its kind in North America and the world’s biggest epilepsy fundraising event – runs Thursday, August 27 to Sunday, August 30, throughout the Yonge Street corridor, from Queen to College Street (which will be closed to traffic) and surrounding areas (including Yonge-Dundas Square). Donate at the gate to Epilepsy Toronto.
Last year, well over 1.5 million spectators enjoyed daredevil stunts, fire manipulations, acrobatics, aerial acts, music, magic, comedy, contortion, dance, balloon creations, mime and some acts that defied description. Whether it’s trampoline-wall climbing, light-bending, full-body mirror costumes, cupcake juggling, giant roaming dinosaurs, Guinness Record-holding Yo-Yo champions or a magician who stumped Penn & Teller, there is something incredible for everyone to see at Toronto International BuskerFest for Epilepsy. There are over 170 world-class performers in more than 70 acts from across Canada and around the globe.
