The 2021 Redmond Busker Pilot Program was a new opportunity for local and regional street performers to perform at Redmond's Downtown Park. Selected artists were permitted as a busker and authorized to perform at designated times at 2 locations in the park with up to 5 performers at a time.
What are Buskers?
Buskers are street performers including musicians, mimes, dancers, theater groups, and other performance artists who perform in public spaces. This program is intended to provide a low-barrier opportunity for local and regional artists of all experience levels to use Downtown Park to present the work they would like to share with the community. Buskers participating in the program are permitted to promote and sell their work or solicit donations from the public.
2022 Buskers Program
Due to limited staffing, the buskers program is currently on hold. This program is scheduled to be re-evaluated in late July 2022, at which time more information will be released.
