The public is strongly encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. 

Chairs will be available for individual shows for a fee. Blankets will be available at the merchandise table while supplies last. 


Due to liability issues, we can only permit alcohol on the premises sold from Will's Pub. The pub will be in operation from 11:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. both days of the festival. 

Ferris Wheel

We had hoped to have a Ferris Wheel for the festival. Because of the popularity of the season (and of Ferris Wheels), procuring one for this year's festival was cost prohibitive. Even so, we remain hopeful that we will be able to bring a Ferris Wheel to the festival in the future!
