The Underpass BUSKER PROGRAM & Permit

180x200_theunderpassThe Underpass Busking Season

The Downtown Rideau Business Improvement Area (DRBIA) invites buskers to help animate The Underpass! Street performances are considered a positive contributor to urban life. A busker is defined as one who provides entertainment on public property for a voluntary gratuity such as musicians, jugglers, mimes, dancers and other performers. Buskers may receive voluntary contributions from audiences without a license but may not actively solicit funds, which is in alignment with the Safe Streets Act.

Performances will be limited to a maximum of 4 hours and will be divided into two time slots (9am-1pm and 1pm – 5pm). No sound amplification will be permitted. The use of dangerous materials such as knives, swords, flammable liquids or fire is strictly prohibited.

For more information regarding the DRBIA Underpass Busker Program please contact Candace Quinlan, Programs & Operations Coordinator, at 613-241-6211 or email underpass@downtownrideau.com.
