The Waterloo Busker Carnival, now a not-for-profit community event, started as a Waterloo Chamber of Commerce event in 1989. It is one of the only festivals of its kind completely managed and operated by a Volunteer Executive Committee.
Organizing and implementing a festival of this size takes many hands. In addition to a volunteer executive the Carnival recruits over 70 volunteers for the 4 days. If you see a volunteer during the Carnival take a moment to say thanks. Without these dedicated volunteers the Carnival would not take place.
