Busker Birthdays

Our performers are professionals who put on a show that is hilarious and engaging for the kids (even the parents get a kick out of it). The Entertainers who started Busker birthdays have over 30 years combined experience performing for kids and family crowds. They know how to get your crowd laughing and how to have loads of fun. Busker Birthdays was started by parents who are professional performing artists.
