See also

What is a Busker? Simply put, it's a street performer and Seaport Village will be full of these bizarre characters when Southern California's only Busker Festival comes to San Diego on March 29-30th, 2014.

These unusual and extraordinary acts from around the world include sword swallowing, knife throwing, juggling, fire breathing, acrobatics, dancing, contortionists, and musical acts. For those over 18 years of age, come to Busker after Dark on Saturday night where the street performers' antics get even crazier! Plus, enjoy $1 beer specials.

Seaport Village sits on San Diego's waterfront and encompasses over 14-acres of one-of-a-kind shops, galleries and restaurants. Seaport Village is located south of the cruise ship terminal at 849 W. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101. It's an easy walk to many of San Diego's other attractions, such as the Gaslamp Quarter, Petco Park, and the Embarcadero (Midway Museum, Star of India, Maritime Museum).

Busker Festival: Saturday and Sunday, March 29-30th from 12pm-6pm.
Buskers After Dark: Saturday only, from 7pm-10pm

Admission to the Busker Festival is FREE, however, parking at Seaport Village is limited and there is a charge. A free shuttle service will be available from the County Administration Building at 1600 Pacific Highway. Shuttles run every 15 minutes, however, it costs $13 to park in the County Administration parking lot. Another transportation alternative is the San Diego Trolley with a stop right at the Busker Festival's front door - Seaport Village.
