The 2015 Rosebud BuskFest was a super success once again with many onlookers enjoyed buskers, dancers, gymnasts, acrobats bringing a day of entertainment and fun to the Peninsula.
Founder and organiser Heidi Luckhurst and her team put on a fantastic program for a family fun day where buskers busked to win the best busker on the day!
Performers were randomly provided an area on the main footpath along Rosebud’s shop fronts, running from Rosebud’s Book Barn to Rosebud Hotel and then continuing around the Rosebud Plaza and Rosebud Safeway.
Locals dressed up in bright colours and enjoyed this unique festival.
The Rosebud Buskfest gets bigger and better every year attracting contestants, local and statewide. There will be cash prizes up to $2,000 and several other great prizes and recording opportunities.
Heidi said, “BuskFest has been created for the people of the community and beyond to have an opportunity to showcase their artistic talent. It creates a new atmosphere and experience and is a new way for performing artists to show their technique to communicate, build knowledge and confidence, share culture diversity and create expression for all ages.”
Many creative performing artists participate and the winners on the day were
