Where is the Festival

Kemptville Buskerfest is located along Prescott st. in the historic Downtown in Kemptville, Ontario, Canada. 

How much does it cost?

The Festival is free admission and everyone is welcome - but we do encourage you to tip the performers. The evening of the event we will have a live music concert that does have an admission fee. Tickets for the concert can be purchased HERE. 

Busking is the one form of entertainment that allows you to watch the show, and then decide how much to pay.  Performers at the festival make their money by what is placed in their hats!

What to bring:

We encourage people to bring water, a small snack, something to sit on (blanket, pillow, folding chair) and, of course, a hat and sun screen! If the weather seems gray, bring an umbrella just in case. Our shows will often go on, even in the rain.
