We love buskers in Central Hawke's Bay - they add vibrancy, colour and fun to our special part of the world. Read a little more about how you can get a permit to put on the performance of a lifetime to our community.
Buskers can bring great colour and life and they're welcome in our vibrant little District.
However, to entertain in public they do need the Council's permission. There may be times when it is necessary to withhold permission, for example when other activities are underway in the downtown area.
Buskers shouldn't create a nuisance by obstructing or harassing people or by making too much noise. Buskers should also seek permission from the owners or staff of shops in the area where they plan to entertain.
Buskers can be issued with a permit for a maximum of one month only, unless prior permission has been granted.
Prospective buskers can come to the Waipawa Administration Office Building on Ruataniwha Street, Waipawa, to request a permit. Or simply fill in this online form!
