People have been talking about this for some time now, but the new logo that has been released for Buskerfest 2022 brings the event closer to reality. Following the success of the 2020 Downtown Promenade event, the part played (no pun intended) by street buskers inspired the idea of having an entire festival of street musicians in Kemptville. Hence, Buskerfest.
Along with so many other community activities, the pandemic has delayed the idea coming to fruition, but it seems that all is a go for next Spring. The main event will be a full day of buskers in the downtown core, with a street closure on Prescott Street from Reuben Crescent to Reuben Crescent. There is also the option of having a concert to finish off the day in Riverside Park, which could be either a free or ticketed event.
However it finally happens, Buskerfest is the promise of a return to the fun, colour, and music that has marked so many great days and weeks in our recent past.
