All performances, art activities and exhibits are presented FREE of charge during Festival Weekend to more than 300,000 visitors every year. We do this to give everyone in our community the chance to experience and participate in the arts. Food booths are run by 501(c)3 non-profit organizations to fund local school sports, churches, food banks, clothing closets and more. When you buy food here you’re actually giving back!
