Caterers

SPECIAL OR SIMPLE – THE QUALITY REQUIREMENTS FOR GASTRONOMIC STANDS ARE HIGH, BOTH IN TERMS OF CONTENT AND AESTHETICS.

Your food stand at Buskers Bern

As with the choice of artists by the artistic directors, the Buskers Bern catering team takes into account food providers or caterers who have their own idea, offer something special and also want to present it. This can be particularly unusual or particularly simple. Our quality standards are high in terms of content, gastronomy and aesthetics.

We will gladly accept applications for Buskers Bern 2022 exclusively in January 2022. If you have submitted/​will submit an application, you will be contacted in the next few weeks.
