Spring Busker Festival in Sunny San Diego

Wave Icon

Need an excuse to book an entertaining weekend getaway to Ocean Park Inn in San Diego? We have the perfect idea! Head out to America’s Finest City for the annual Spring Busker Festival, a cannot-miss event taking place March 7th-8th, 2015!  So what exactly is a Busker?  A Busker is a street artist that is known for unusual performances, usually comedic, that performs across the globe for tips, and this March many of the most renowned performers will be gathering in our gorgeous city for the festival.

San Diego’s Seaport Village is the one and only host in Southern California of this event, so you can’t see this show anywhere else! There will be everything from sword swallowing, to knife throwing, to juggling while riding unicycles. Past performers have included funny man Marcus Wilson, the human balloon Skip Banks and king of clean comedy, Extreme Rahim. We know it will draw a lot of characters to America’s Finest City, and you won’t want to miss out on the fun.

The best part is, it is a two-day festival! Double the performers, treats and sweets! After the show, explore beautiful Seaport Village. Located on San Diego’s Harbor, Seaport Village currently contains 50 diverse shops, 17 places to eat and lots of outdoor entertainment.

For great food, we always recommend going to the Harbor House. This delicious restaurant holds happy hour from 3 p.m.-6 p.m. every day, and boasts delectable lunch and dinner options. Try the ahi tower, stacked with crab, avocado, papaya salsa and garnished with ponzu sauce covered shrimp chips. If that description alone hasn’t sold you, consider stopping by for fresh oysters daily.

Take a quick Uber back to Ocean Park Inn and finish up the weekend enjoying Pacific Beach. The Pacific Beach Boardwalk is the perfect place to go on a run, enjoy a leisurely walk or play beach volleyball.  The cool ocean breeze is just steps away from your room, and is the perfect place to relax after a long day of “oo’s” and “aww’s” at the Busker Festival!
