Street performances are a fantastically creative way to showcase your talent and raise money for your charity at the same time. Every talent can be turned into a street performance (as long as it isn’t dangerous!).
Street Performance Tips
Popular street performance ideas include:
- Music. Singing, playing an instrument, performing with a band
- Performance. Dancing, street theater, breakdancing, comedy, poetry
- Arts. Living statues, drawing caricatures, pavement art
- Circus acts. Juggling, sword swallowing, clowning
In the United States, busking — performing for money — is legal in most public spaces. Nonetheless, you should check with your local government before busking, as there may be special rules in certain areas.
Set up a sign that tells viewers you’re performing for charity, and have a friend collect money or hand out flyers to interested audience members.
