Buskerfest used to take place around St. Lawrence Market but it grew so large that they had to move it to a bigger spot so they moved it to Yonge Street. It runs from about College down to Richmond Street on Yonge Street. While it makes it a lot easier to get there by subway for people it's not so great for drivers trying to get around the area. I do prefer it to the St. Lawrence Market area though as you can pop into other things like coffee shops or other along the way.
I strolled the full Yonge Street route looking for interesting things to see and food to eat naturally.
Some of the usual street eats were hot dogs, lemonade, fries, blooming onion, funnel cakes etc.
I have seen the Saucy Pierogi booth at a couple of events but didn't have a chance to try their food before. I can only eat so much at one time. I would never win a food eating contest that's for sure. The rain just stopped for a minute so I got an order for pierogies with bacon, sour cream and onions with a gruyere sauce. I just got my order when it started raining again... I ran for cover under a glass overhang at the Eaton Centre and chowed down on the pierogies. Kind of a weird buskerfest eat but it was dinner for me. It was very good. I really liked the cheese sauce.
Buskerfest advice: Wear comfortable shoes, bring an umbrella, make sure you have lot's of change for buskers and donations and for the food eats too.
Ditch the strollers if you can on busy days..... and don't forget the sunscreen on the sunny days.
Have fun and enjoy the Buskers.
