Ballarò Buskers – Palermo
20-22 October 2023. The international street artist festival
From October 20th to 22nd, 2023, the Palermo district Ballarò, known around the world for its Arab-style, open-air market, hosts the 7th edition of Ballarò Buskers Festival.
At Ballarò Buskers Festival, for three days, streets, squares and monuments of the district are invaded by acrobats, musicians, jugglers, actors. An original way to live in the historic market.
Ballarò historic market is the authentic core of Albergheria, one of the four historic “mandamenti” of Palermo. A symbol of hospitality and integration: the inhabitants of the district come from sixteen different countries. A melting pot of cultures, colors, food and perfumes that pacifically coexist: a fascinating place, impossible to forget.
The idea of a busker festival stemmed from this cultural renewal in order to celebrate the artistic richness of one of the most iconic places of Palermo.
