Weekend Arts Around Town (August 28-30)

Don’t know what to do this weekend? We’ve got a few ideas:

August 27 – 30
Sun Life Financial Waterloo Busker Carnival
Join Centre In The Square this weekend to witness magnificent street performances by buskers from Canada and around the world. This carnival started in 1989 and is now considered to be one of the premier busker carnivals not just in Canada but around the world.
When you’re at this event make sure you come by and fill out a ballet at The Centre’s booth for a chance to win a pair of tickets to Illusionist Darcy Oake: Edge of Reality.
We hope to see you at Canada’s Premier Busker Carnival!

Friday, August 28 @ 9.30 PM
Jackets
The Boathouse
Jackets is a rock ‘n’ roll band from Kitchener-Waterloo who have built up a reputation over the past few years for being one of the region’s preeminent live acts, playing at the 2013 KW Bluesfest, Canadian Music Week, and the 2014 Come Together Festival. Their first album, “Neighbours”, was included in Radio Laurier’s list of the “Top 10 Albums of 2012 by Local Bands”.  Watch them live at The Boathouse this Friday night!

Sunday, August 30 @ 2PM – 4PM
