Busker Fest PERFORMANCE Schedule

•••

Vaudeville-style performances fill block 70 in Downtown SLC. On Regent Street, find three busking circles (or pitches) to delight and entertain with fantastical acts of juggling, magic, dance, aerialists, music and more. Enjoy a fourth pitch on Main Street in front of Eccles Theater. Surrounding streets have buskers performing throughout the evening to wandering visitors and revelers alike. Salt Lake City was once home to a thriving vaudeville theater scene. Tonight, we pay homage to that history by reviving street theater in the city.
