FAQ

Do you have to be queer to be a vendor or busker in our street fair?
No. While preferential selection may be given to queer vendors or buskers, we also love our queer allies and they will be vendors/buskers as well!

What is a busker?
A street performance or busking is the act of performing in public places for gratuities. Performances are anything that people find entertaining. Performers may do acrobatics, balloon twisting, caricatures, clowning, comedy, contortions, escapology, dance, singing, fire skills, juggling, magic, mime, living statue, musical performance, puppeteering, storytelling or reciting poetry or prose, street theatre, sword swallowing, ventriloquism, etc.
