The Waterloo Busker Carnival is fun for the whole family with something for all ages. Enjoy the carnival-like atmosphere as you visit the midway, explore delicious foods and join us at the edge of our seats to watch spectacular world-class one-of-a-kind performers that are sure to amaze, excite and inspire!

How much does it cost? Admission to the Carnival is FREE. The artists make their living by the tips they receive. While they receive some travel assistance they are not paid by the Carnival. After each show, the artists will pass the hat for your tips and donations. If you enjoyed the show, please contribute an amount that you can afford as a thank you. How much you tip is up to you.

Rob Roy Collins, from the United Kingdom, helped us kickoff the 31st Annual Sun Life Financial Waterloo Busker Carnival by performing his Great Escape with a very unusal twist!

And thanks to our sponsor HIP Developments, we brought you not 1 but 2 special fire performances at the Sherwood Stage on both Friday and Saturday evenings at 11 pm. Where Hoop You performed fire dance, fire poi, fire eating, fire hula, and more.

See you in 2020 for yet another fun-filled Sun Life Financial Waterloo Busker Carnival.
