Together with the many events in the Ferrara area, the Ferrara Buskers Festival is definitely one of those not to be missed! We highly recommend it to all those who love music, art and fun.
This is an event that generally takes place in August, and this year will take place from 24 to 28 August 2022. But what is the Ferrara Buskers Festival? For those who have never heard of it, it is simply the largest event in the world dedicated to street artists. The focus is specifically on musicians, but you can also find jugglers, writers, painters and poets.
In fact, one of the main values that the festival is committed to transmitting is that of inclusion, together with the passion for art and spontaneity. Come to Ferrara during the festival and you will find at every corner, in every street, in the main square, in the little squares and in all the medieval alleys, artists who will involve you with their music and will make you experience unique and inimitable emotions.
This year will be the 35th edition of the festival, and we will finally see it in all its glory, with its original format, after two years of restrictions. There will be artists from all over the world and every evening there will be fixed stations and others that will change, to allow everyone to perform and be seen. A peculiarity of the buskers is "doing hat", which means using an object that can be a hat, as well as any other effective container, to ask for an offer from the spectators, who will also have the opportunity to buy the musicians discs and let them enter in their homes.
The Ferrara Buskers Festival is therefore a unique opportunity to attend inimitable and spontaneous performances and to experience the center of Ferrara colored with music and visitors from all over the world. Come and visit us at the Hotel Lucrezia Borgia to give the final touch to your experience!
