Showcasing the very best in street performance, the Southland Buskers Festival is a popular annual event that occurs in late January and early February.

The festival is a free event, with donations sought via the performers’ “hats”. The Southland Buskers Festival is suitable for the whole family and has become a favourite event on Southland’s events calendar.

The event is produced by The Invercargill City Charitable Trust, with Venture Southland providing support in liaison and marketing. The festival has been directed, since its inception, by Jodi Wright.

Programming decisions are made in August each year for the festival. If you are a professional company seeking to be included in the festival, please email Jodi:
