Giant Puppett Bull

Looking for an easy escape from the urban sprawl? Ellensburg offers a laid-back atmosphere that’s fun-filled for the entire family with shops, museums, kid-friendly restaurants, hiking, fishing camping and more!

Jump around in a bouncy house, practice your painting skills on pumpkins and watch in awe as 20-foot puppets march through the farmers market. Sounds like a party you want to join, right? On September 27 and 28 gather your brood for Buskers in the Burg and prepare to spend two days surrounded by cool art, music, good eats and more.

Kick-off opening night with a variety show filled with stunts, magic and comedy. Or, if you’re looking for some adult-only fun, treat yourself to a wine and beer walk exploring downtown’s brew pub, tasting rooms and shops.

On Saturday, see giant robots and other larger-than-life puppets created by Seattle artist Brian Kooser and members of the community march in what will surely be a memorable puppet parade. After the parade, chase your little tykes through a straw maze, explore a firehouse or ride a pony in the festival’s free kid’s area. Yeah, that’s right, free.

And that’s not all. Buskers in the Burg boasts amazing street performers who add a unique flavor this festival. From magicians to comedians, jugglers and stunt artists these performers will have your little half pints giggling with delight.
