Buskers by the Lake

Festivals and Celebrations

20 Aug 2022 to 21 Aug 2022 Annual Event

Celebrated as Australia’s original and multi-award winning busking festival, ‘Buskers by the Lake’ is a weekend of magic, mystique and marvel. Be under no illusion and prepare yourself for the glitz and glam, vivacious energy and extravagant party!

In a celebration of the old-fashioned art of busking, performers will showcase their talents along the banks of Lake Kawana. People of all ages will soak up the atmosphere, vibe and sunshine and immerse themselves in the melting pot of creativity, culture and surprise.

From samba struts to Afro-Brazilian drum rhythms, from award winning musicians and talented teens, from swing to sword swallowing, “Buskers by the Lake” this year will see even more incredible entertainment, jaw dropping tricks, daring world record attempts and waterborne magic. Due to popular demand, the floating half-pipe is also making a comeback with BMX and skateboarding daredevils preparing to ignite!

Throughout the park grounds, the international festival fare will be available to tempt all taste buds and artisans will be showcasing their creative wares and talents.
