The Underpass Busking Season:
The Downtown Rideau Business Improvement Area (DRBIA) tested a pilot busker program in 2012, the results of which lead us to conclude that we require the City of Ottawa to create a bylaw that was enable us to continue to offer a busker program. Regretfully, we do not anticipate that this bylaw will be implemented in time for our summer 2013 program.
We thank you for your interest in the DRBIA Busker Program and encourage you to contact both the ByWard Market and Sparks Street Mall BIAs here in Ottawa, who also offer fantastic busking programs. They can be reached as follows:
ByWard Market BIA
Sparks Street Mall BIA
