FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne’s beloved Buskerfest returned on Saturday.
Buskerfest celebrates “buskers,” another word for street performers. Admission and street parking were free, and the public was encouraged to tip buskers for their efforts.
The festival took place on Saturday, May 21 in downtown Fort Wayne from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. where buskers from all across the country came out to perform music, juggling, and other acts.

This was the 11th celebration of Buskerfest. Poor weather almost cancelled the event but, fortunately, the rain stayed away.
Rick Zolman the event manager for Downtown Fort Wayne who set up the event said, “We’re prepared to react to that if we have to cancel the event. The forecast depends on what meteorologist you’re listening to and what their opinion is at the moment. We’re not going to know anything until tomorrow.”
