Sunset Celebration

How to Set Up as a Performer

Procedure for Setting Up as a Performer:

  1. Show up on site at the Manager's kiosk behind the arches on Mallory Square twoBirdie McClaine on the Unicycle hours and 15 minutes before the time of sunset.

  2. Fill out and sign a registration and release form.

  3. All performers must participate in a seniority based lottery prior to set up.

  4. As of December 1, 2014 all performers must pay a set fee to set up: $15 for large acts and $5 for small acts (individual musicians, balloon twisters, etc.).

We do not make advanced reservations for acts. Participation and location is determined on a nightly basis.

 Performer's Guidelines

There are plenty of spaces available for buskers in the summer. We try to accommodate all performers. There are times of the year when the pier is full and we cannot guarantee a space during these times.

We hope to see you at Sunset!!
