Location: Denver Union Station

1701 Wynkoop St., Denver, CO 80202
August 1 – 4, 2019 | COLORADO DAY WEEKEND
Wynkoop Plaza at Denver Union Station will be home to a Colorado Day celebration kicking off the fourth annual Buskerfest. Colorado will be turning 143 years young – and to wish the great state happy birthday – local artists and members of the international busking community will present their fun, zany acts to crowds.
A select few world-class street performers will be cheekily curated by the 2019 Buskerfest Jury. Acts chosen will surprise and delight with their extraordinary juggling, break dancing, comedy, acrobatics, bucket drumming and unicycling over the weekend. Shows will run hourly, alternating between two performance pitches.
Fun for the Whole Family
Larger than life puppets, face-painting, festival roaming performers on stilts, and kinetic contraptions will bring more arts to the plaza.
