Nova Scotia’s favourite summer festival is excited to announce its return to the Halifax and Dartmouth waterfronts from August 2 to August 7, 2023. Added stages and an incredible roster of international talent will provide locals and visitors with exciting and unique entertainment.
An exciting new addition for 2023, the Seaport Busker Performance Stage, located at the south end of the boardwalk near the Halifax Seaport Farmers Market, Pier 21 and Garrison Brewery, will be filled with fun and entertainment featuring hourly shows, the Glow Party Family Fun Zone, and food trucks.
The Halifax waterfront will also feature three action-filled busker performance stages and food and craft vendors around the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Sackville Landing (site of Halifax’s infamous Wave) and Foundation Wharf.
The festival successfully expanded to Dartmouth last year and will have two performance stages, vendors, and the ever-popular East Coast Amusements midway at Alderney Landing once again in 2023.
Check the Buskerfest website for the complete line-up, including dates, times and venues.
