Victoria International Busker Festival to host shows at Uptown in Saanich

The Victoria International Buskers Festival is coming to  Saanich as Uptown will host three performances daily during the one week of July 16 to 23.

A stage has been set and will offer shows at 3, 4 and 5 p.m. daily starting tomorrow.

“Part of our arts mandate is to extend our reach out into the community so we are tremendously excited to bring the buskers to Uptown,” said John Vickers, executive director of the Victoria International Buskers Festival Society. “This is just another great way we are able to serve up our terrific fun to more people from across the region.”

The shows are free with limited seating, but plenty of room for onlookers to gather at Uptown’s ‘Town Plaza.’

Popular soccer ball juggler Victor Rubilar is returning to the festival this year and will kick off the Uptown shows at 3 p.m. on Saturday followed by the FlameOz fire act from Australia and The Kif-Kif sisters comedy act from Quebec city. For a schedule of performances at Uptown visit
