Archived: Auckland International Buskers Festival 2017

27 - 30 January 2017

Enjoy breath-taking stunts, quirky skills and gut-busting comedy this Auckland Anniversary Weekend, when the Auckland International Buskers Festival returns to the Waterfront. Jetting in from around the globe, a host of brilliant performers will amuse and astonish all ages with world-class shows in the open-air.
This year’s performers offer a wide variety of skills including contortion, acrobatics, hula hooping, juggling, daredevil stunt work, slapstick comedy, unicycling, illusion, jump rope and even fire-lighting of the derrière.

Bring the family along for the daily shows running from 12pm, or head to Market Square in the Viaduct Harbour for the exciting night show line-ups on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7.30pm. Dig up those spare coins and notes, and head downtown to catch these wildly adventurous street performers! Locations are spread across various locations including Wynyard Quarter, Market Square, Viaduct Harbour, Princes Wharf and Queens Wharf and Lower Queen Plaza.
