Toowoomba Busking Festival
The Toowoomba Busking Festival (TBF) is a yearly event, which takes place on Easter Saturday. Our aim is to fill the Toowoomba CBD with music, art and a festival atmosphere.
In running the festival our aim is to bless the city with the free gift of music and art. The event partners with Toowoomba’s Streets and Lanes Festival to achieve these goals.
2018 was the first year we ran the Toowoomba Busking Festival. We are very proud to have partnered with Toowoomba Regional Council, Grand Central Shopping Centre, Walton Stores and many others in running the event.
The competition element creates a unique feel for the festival. Buskers fill the CBD during the morning of Easter Saturday, while judges watch the performances and pick their top buskers for the finals. Later on main stage the finalists get a shot at taking home the grand prize and title of Toowoomba Busking Festival winner.
But this busking festival isn’t just about finding the best busker. During the event, there is also a people’s choice award as voted by friends, family, and the random people that enjoy the music as they walk by.
We hope to champion and support the home-grown artists and musicians in our city, as well as draw musicians and artists from all over Australia to fill the streets of Toowoomba.
Come check out the Toowoomba Busking Festival with us this year!
