Kingston Buskers Rendezvous is back July 7 - 10, 2022!

This year marks the 32nd edition of Kingston Buskers Rendezvous! Not bad, considering it started as a fun addition to the July Sidewalk Sale. Now known as one of the preeminent festivals of its kind in Canada, audiences can expect to see a phenomenal roster of global talent on multiple pitches on the streets and street corners all over downtown.
