Sword-swallowers, aerialists, jugglers and more will invade Seaport Village for the 8th annual Spring Busker Festival, Saturday March 29 and Sunday March 30 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. This free festival invites some of the most unique and talented performers from around the world to San Diego’s waterfront. Busking, or street performing for tips, is a centuries-old tradition. Buskers enjoy being on the ground with their audience so they can interact with the crowd. This one-of-a-kind event only happens once a year, and entrance to the Busker Festival is free, although tipping of performers is encouraged. Saturday evening from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., buskers will let loose in the village for Buskers After Dark. This lively show will feature a DJ, food and drink specials and busker acts best suited for those over 18. If you’re a beer-lover, you won’t want to miss these deals:
- $1 beer (Stone IPA, Arrogant Bastard, Blue Moon, Fat Tire and Miller Light) with purchase of one fish taco at Marion’s Fish Market
- $1 Tailgate Breweries beer at San Diego Burger Company & Margaritas Kitchen & Cantina
- $1 Bud & Bud Light at Greek Islands Café & Asaggio
The $1 craft beers start at 7 p.m. and run until 10 p.m., or until the kegs run dry so plan to arrive early. Beer enthusiasts must also RSVP here to get the $1 beer specials. Seaport Village is known for its fantastic restaurants and eateries, and many are offering discounted pricing at the festival. Parking will be available for visitors at the Seaport Village lot, and a free shuttle will run from the parking lot on the northwest corner of Pacific Highway and West Broadway.
