Buskers

The buskers competing in the Australian National Busking Championships™ -South East Queensland Regional Finals are entertaining the crowds on the streets of Stanthorpe today. For pics, videos & updates, follow us on Facebook.  

Finalists will perform at the Finals concert in Weeroona Park Band Shell from 4pm until approximately 7:30pm. Buskers are moving to different stations throughout the course of the day and wrap up at 3pm.

The judges will be moving throughout the street during the day selecting finalists. A list of finalists will be posted in the Apple & Grape shop front at 3:30pm (corner of Railway and Maryland Streets - diagonally opposite the Post Office).

Rotary will have their food van in the park with yummy food available and chairs for the public to sit and cheer the buskers on. This event is a free family event and will be alcohol free.

The people's choice award is decided by the public voting with Rotary Dollars purchased at the Apple & Grape shop for $1 a ticket. The tickets sold also go into a lucky prize draw during the concert.
