Victoria International Buskers Festival and the Moss Street Paint in!

From July 20th to July 29th, 2012 Victoria will once again be home to one of the world’s most unique street theatre festivals! Buskers from around the world will converge in Victoria and present ten days of performances on event stages along our Inner Harbour and in Bastion Square. Additional daily lunch time performances will also be presented at the Bay Centre !

Commonly known as the “Moss Street Paint-In”, this event is organized by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria as a community outreach initiative featuring 150 invited professional and emerging artists from Victoria and surrounding areas. Artists take their studios to the street to display and produce their work on Moss Street between Fort Street and Dallas Road. The Paint-In is a free and fun-filled community-based art awareness and education event that sees up to 35,000 visitors.

Vancouver Island’s largest outdoor visual art event, the TD Art Gallery Paint-In is celebrating its 25th Anniversary! Saturday July 21, 2012.
