Toronto BuskerFest

What Was It?

Joining entertainment, business and charity, BuskerFest was established in 1999 by Epilepsy Toronto as a way to help raise funds for, and create public awareness of epilepsy. BuskerFest is Epilepsy Toronto’s largest fundraiser of the year. Ryerson University was a sponsor of BuskerFest.

BuskerFest took place August 27-30th, 2015 from Yonge St. from Queen to College, Yonge-Dundas Square, Trinity Square Park and Gould St. on Ryerson University campus.
