Street performers are defined as any person or group of persons who conduct a performance, including by not limited to musicians and buskers, for entertainment purposes or voluntary donations on public right-of ways. Street performers add vibrancy to public spaces and are encouraged to perform where pedestrian traffic is high and space is available for public access and observation. Use of such public rights-of-way for street performances requires a Private Use of Public Spaces permit.
