Schedule of Events & Entertainment:

Busker Bios:

Wacky Chad:  

Wacky Chad's award-winning pogo stick skills, charmingly funny jokes and antics got him on America's Got Talent (Twice!), But you probably didn't see it because they didn't air it. He has performed in 26 countries including the Dubai Comedy Festival, NBA Halftime Shows, Formula One, and even the SuperBowl. Prepare to be amazed, and if you don't like laughing, go somewhere else. www.WackyChad.com


Mighty Mike: 

Mighty Mike showcases old time strongman feats and juggling, with a lot of spontaneous fun and audience interaction. Mike focuses on customizing his show for each event and is always looking to try something new that will wow your audience! In addition to the world-class feats of strength, such as bending horseshoes and juggling bowling balls, Mike keeps the audience engaged with his quick wit and the timeless wisdom from the old time strongmen he learned from. http://mightymikeshow.com/


Tim Burr:

Tim Burr is a Canuck, an all-around Canadian "Bud" who would rather show off his circus skills than do hard work. Families climb out of the woodwork to root for him as he takes a whack at juggling running chainsaws, balancing axes on his face or performing a 'graceful' log-rolling stunt high in the air while juggling hatchets. Audiences simply can't help but fall for this all-Canadian funny feller! Let's hope he doesn't fall on them! www.timburr.ca

Nathaniel Rankin:

Nathaniel Rankin The Canadian Champion of Magic is an international award winning magician & circus artist. His one man show Borderline Madness combines state of the art modern magic, circus skills, dangerous stunts, audience interaction, comedy & mind reading. Borderline Madness has been performed over 5,000 times in 35 countries and 5 continents. http://www.nathanielrankin.ca


For over 15 years FireGuy has had a burning desire to entertain the world with his fascinating element. Brant Matthews aka FireGuy is based in Toronto and has performed in countries all over the world. FireGuy is an expert in Fire Juggling, Fire Eating, Fire Breathing and Fire Performing. 


John Park – The Funny Waiter:

If you're looking for something different, then the Funny Waiter Show is for you. You'll see the nine-plate spinning routine mastered by only a handful of people in all of North America. Add to that original food and drink based comedy routines, and you've got a show unlike anything you've ever seen before. http://www.johnparkcomedy.com/funnywaiter.html
