Faneuil Hall Marketplace Street Performers Festival
May 26 - May 28, 2012
On Memorial Day weekend, Faneuil Hall comes alive with a Street Performers Festival Extravaganza.
Enjoy performances by jugglers, mimes, magicians, puppeteers and musicians are just a few of over 50 entertainers presenting three days of entertainment and interactive activities.
This form of live entertainment is a special kind of art. Street performance or busking is the practice of performing in public places, for gratuities, which are generally in the form of money and applause. Street performance dates back to antiquity, and occurs all over the world.
The Street Performer's Festival at Faneuil Hall is a lot of fun and with all of the variety acts scattered around Qunicy Market you are sure to find something to entertain the entire family.
