2015 Spring Busker Festival

Our sister property, Seaport Village will host its 9th annual Busker Festival this weekend from 12-6 pm and we are very excited to get into the mix and host a few acts at The Headquarters’ courtyard.

If you’re wondering what a Busker or a Busker Festival is, let me give you some background.   Buskers are popular across the globe, they are public street performers known for their unusual and awe-inspiring acts. San Francisco’s Pier 39, Boston’s Faneuil Hall and London’s Covent Gardens are locations known to have vibrant busker scenes that showcase this incredible street art.  Each year, Seaport Village holds a festival where they host talented buskers from all over the world. 

Come early and grab some lunch at The Headquarters while you check out talented buskers and musicians.

Acts performing at The Headquarters:

March 7th, 12-2 pm: The Suburbans, (50s inspired live music)  

March 7th & 8th, 4-6pm: Extreme Rahim (Comedy variety show)

March 7th, 2-4pm: Carolyn Woods (Live body painting)

Seaport Village will also host its racier, 18+ event- Buskers After Dark on Saturday, March 7th, 7-10 pm.  There will be a dj, beer, wine, and food specials as well as some fine busker performances.  So, make sure to check that out as well.
