The NCMA welcomes select buskers from across the state to play music throughout the Museum Park.
Buskers are street performers who entertain in public spaces for gratuities. This practice is found all over the world and has existed for centuries. While busking takes many forms, this event is centered around music performances. Come enjoy a day in the Park with amazing talent!
For buskers interested in performing, apply for a spot here. Submissions are open through 11:59 pm on Wednesday, September 15. We will notify applicants on Monday, October 18, as to whether they’ve been granted a spot.
