Sun Life Waterloo Busker Carnival

REGION 4: Huron, Perth, Waterloo and Wellington 100 Regina Street South Waterloo ON N2J 4P9 Uptown Waterloo (King and Regina Street)
24 Aug. - 27 Aug. 2023


Celebrating 35 years of fun!  The Sun Life Waterloo Busker Carnival is a not-for-profit, volunteer-driven carnival that has been entertaining families in the Waterloo Region since 1989. From acrobats, to contortion, comedy and fire breathers, the carnival brings the best international artists in the world to UpTown Waterloo for four days.


Be prepared to laugh and be amazed. Take some time to stop at our vendors to enjoy some international foods and do some shopping. Take in some of your favourite shows, try your hand at the midway games and don’t forget a ride on our famous ferris wheel with amazing views. There’s fun for the whole family.

How much does it cost? Admission to the carnival is free. The artists make their living by the tips they receive. While they receive some travel assistance they are not paid by the carnival. After each show, the artists will “pass the hat” for your tips and donations. If you enjoyed the show, please contribute an amount that you can afford as a thank you. How much you tip is up to you.
