There is a long tradition of street performers in many countries. In medieval times, dancers, singers, musician and actors traveled around, performing at markets, fairs and festivals, wherever there was a crowd to watch them. The tradition is still alive.

In some countries such, as France, there are festivals every year. These festivals still have the spirit of the medieval fairs. In Germany there`s a different kind of festival. It`s called «street theatre«. Groups of actors and entertainers come from different countries to perform in the open air. Then there `s the carnival, which in some ways is very different. The most exciting carnival are the ones in South America and the West Indies, where people dress in fantastic, brightly coloured costumes and dance to music in the streets.

In London, there`s a West Indian Carnival every year. People who originally came from the West Indies keep the tradition of the carnival alive. Street bands play on the platforms of lorries driving through the streets. In front of them, groups of dancers, wearing bright costumes, dance to music. The crowds join in with dancers. You can buy all kinds of West Indian food everywhere.

In France there is festival called the «saltimbanque«. The festival goes on for three or four days. Everybody stops working (except the people who work in bars and cafes). People come out on the streets and watch the performers. Everyone dresses up. Ordinary people wear costumes of animals, fairies and monsters. Children love the festival. Often, the street actors paint the children`s faces for them. Many groups of actors and musicians entertain the crowds. There are many shows and street bands. There are many individual performers who thrill the people. There are fire eaters and tightrope walkers. In the evening, there are many musicians playing music from different countries. People dance and sing to the bands in the streets.
