Street Performers

Street Performers can enhance the visitor experience at the Festival of Lights. To avoid adversely impacting the streets and sidewalks, Riverside Municipal Code Section 13.21 sets forth appropriate street performer locations on peak days and hours. These reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions balance performers’ rights with the health, safety and welfare of the City’s residents, business owners and Festival visitors.

*No Street performers the entire day of Switch-On Ceremony

Street performers will be featured at these locations:

Creative Corner: Museum Plaza
3580 Mission Inn Avenue

Creative Corner: Library Plaza
