Ottawa International Buskerfest 2020

Ottawa International Buskerfest Cancelled for 2020

JULY 20, 2020

It is with heavy hearts and physical distancing safety measures at the top of mind that we must announce the cancellation of the 2020 edition of the Ottawa International Buskerfest.

Even with the recent announcement of the Stage 3 reopening, we feel it is not yet safe for us to host our well-loved, family-friendly festival.

The Sparks Street BIA continues to work closely with its membership and key partners, including City of Ottawa, Ottawa Festivals, Ottawa Tourism, Ottawa Coalition of BIAs, and Ottawa Public Health as we navigate COVID-19.

We look forward to the return of Ottawa International Buskerfest in 2021 -  and flexible like an acrobat, we sincerely look forward to bringing you the best experience possible. We will see you, our amazing visitors, renowned artists and dazzling street performers soon and we thank you for all the support. 

Until we can clap together again, please follow safety guidelines, stay healthy, and visit our friendly local businesses.
