How can you help?
We are looking for any performers who are willing to donate their time to our event. Fire breathers, fire spinners, flow artists, contortionists, strong man, dancing bear, fortune teller, tarot card reader, belly dancer, etc. We are also looking for bands anything from steampunk to bluegrass, rockabilly to country.

- 8-9 rotation of performers (15 - 30 minute sets)
- 9-9:30 band plays set
- 9-10:15 rotation of performers (15 - 30 minute sets)
