Attention artists! The heart of Downtown Windsor is about to pulsate with the rhythm of music as the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association (DWBIA) presents Buskers on the Block. This groundbreaking initiative is set to be held every Saturday from 5 pm -10 pm throughout August, offering a unique celebration of music, arts and culture that bridges cultural divides and fosters community understanding.
Buskers on the Block will feature a variety of local musicians, artists and street performers promising a captivating experience for those living, working, and visiting the city centre. Ouellette Avenue will be transformed into a vibrant stage, alive with a range of performances that highlight the rich diversity of musical, artistic and cultural expression.
But that’s not all! The Downtown Windsor BIA is currently seeking artists who want to participate in these exciting events. Whether you’re a captivating musician, a passionate performer, or a creative artist with a knack for spectacle, we want to showcase the best that Windsor has to offer in street entertainment. This opportunity is a fantastic way for artists to engage with and inspire the community.
If you’re an artist eager to make your mark on Windsor’s streets, we want to hear from you! As part of our initiative, selected artists will get the chance to perform at several lively locations across our city starting Saturday, August 5th with two slots, from 5 – 7:15 p.m. and 7:15 – 9:45 p.m. Performance spots include Ouellette Ave at Riverside Drive; University; Maiden Lane West; and Tuscarora.
“The DWBIA understands the enchanting spell buskers cast,” said Downtown Windsor BIA Chair Chris MacLeod. “Their talents can turn city corners into cultural epicenters. This magic has been witnessed in cities across Canada, and now, it’s coming to Windsor, igniting joy, inspiring curiosity, and fostering a sense of connection among residents and visitors, which makes downtown a buzzing hub of creativity and culture.”
