From their website:
"The Toronto International BuskerFest for Epilepsy returns to the Downtown Yonge Neighbourhood for another excitement-filled year. The longest and most vibrant street in the world is a perfect venue for the largest epilepsy event in the world and North America's largest Street Performer Festival!
The last of the major festivals in the Toronto summer entertainment season, the festival is spontaneous, colourful and bursting with the unexpected. There is something for everyone; silent comedy and slapstick, daredevils and magicians, high skill circus acts and a wide variety of music, clowns, contortionists, acrobats, aerialists, puppets, fire and a few things we have no words to describe. Over 170 of the best street performers in more than 70 acts from Canada and around the world – including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Peru, Poland, Thailand, The Netherlands, Slovakia and the U.S. – will excite and amaze Torontonians and tourists alike. And new this year is the Family Fun Zone, with great activities for the kids and performances by some of the festival’s silliest buskers!"
