20690326_10155333367220239_8146386265976856334_oThe Ottawa International Buskerfest on Sparks Street – Orbital Founder Brian Wilson started performing there 25 years ago, and he has been working on and producing the Ottawa Buskerfest for the last 5 years. Since that time the festival has grown to include a circus school (in 2017 we added an aerial circus component), and a very popular late night Buskers and burlesque show (a not to miss ticketted event at the Marriot hotel.)  Brian has started a non-profit to help the growth and to support the festival.
