Vibrant international Street Performers will be hitting the streets of Auckland, New Zealand for the sixteenth time over Auckland Anniversary Weekend 2017.

Acrobats, jugglers, contortionists, hula hoop artists, comedians and many others will rendezvous on Auckland’s Waterfront and Lower Queen Street to create the electrifying atmosphere that is the Auckland International Buskers Festival!

The festival runs from Friday 27 January to Monday 30 January 2017. Shows start daily at 12 noon. Night Shows run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Buskers actually earn their living by ‘passing the hat’ so if you enjoy their performance let them know when the hat is passed to you. It is up to you to decide how much you will give them. How much would you expect to pay for a ticket to a similar performance at the theatre or circus?

So empty your piggy bank, pockets and swear jar for a handful of loose change. From the Viaduct to Lower Queen Street, the streets will be transformed into a playground for some of the world’s most talented street performers. Come experience a world of madness and mayhem at the 2017 International Buskers Festival in Auckland’s CBD.
