BuskerFest is back for it’s 18th incredible year! Over the years, BuskerFest has delighted millions of spectators with unbelievable spectacles, and helped to raise valuable funds for Epilepsy Toronto through generous donations from visitors. Every year, the best street performers from around the world gather in The Beach at Woodbine Park over the Labour Day Weekend (this year they’ll meet from Friday, September 1st to Monday September 4th).
It’s the perfect way to say goodbye to summer in style, and support a great cause. BuskerFest Toronto is the largest epilepsy event anywhere! In the words of Geoff Bobb, Executive Director of Epilepsy Toronto:
This is one of the most amazing festivals in the world. We are incredibly excited about all of the international and Canadian performers who make this festival come alive and who share their talents in support of epilepsy. With the funds raised at this festival through gate donations, we are able to provide much needed support to the 1-in-100 people in Toronto living with epilepsy.
