Organisers are now looking for buskers to enter this year’s competition.

To be held across the March long weekend during the Port Fairy Folk Festival, the competition is a unique opportunity to perform on the street among thousands of music fans.

Presented in collaboration with the Folk Festival Committee, the Street Fair has become a much-loved element of the Labour Day long weekend, with music, kids entertainment, food, stalls and more creating a lively atmosphere.

Mayor Ian Smith said crowds love the variety of musical styles and performances buskers bring.

“Whether you’re a solo artist, a dynamic duo or a full band, this is your chance to shine,” he said.

“Each participating busker can be rated by the crowd they draw.

“Up for grabs is a pair of tickets to the 2025 Folk Festival, some serious bragging rights, and a great addition to their musical CV.”

Buskers can apply at with applications closing on February 16.
