Castlegar’s downtown will be turning into a hot spot for live music this summer.
Buskers will be making appearances five days a week at Stephenville Square — next to the Wandering Greek Oven restaurant — between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
The organizers hope the project will encourage foot traffic in the downtown core while providing the opportunity for residents and visitors to perhaps eat their lunch outdoors while enjoying some music.
Organizers were able to obtain funding to hire a summer student to coordinate the project. Buskers are compensated for their work and are welcome to put out a hat while they perform as well.
More buskers are still needed, so if you are interested in performing contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The initiative is a collaboration between the City of Castlegar, Destination Castlegar, Castlegar and District Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development and partially sponsored by Pinnacle Private Accounting and Revival Boutique.
