Are you interested in performing at the Festival?
We are looking for musicians, singer-songwriters, dance acts, and more! We want to feature a variety of entertainment and entertainers that will appeal to diverse audiences and that reflect multiple cultures. We strongly favor local artists and performers, but are open to featuring others whose style and content are particularly suited to our events. All performances must be family-friendly.
If you have an act that you think might be a good fit, please let us know. We would love to hear from you! We are particularly interested in the following:

- Café Stage: We chiefly use this stage for accoustic artists. But we have also featured karate demonstrations, weddings, poets, and political activists.

If you have an idea that doesn’t seem to fit these categories, we still want to hear from you! Email us. This might include anything … a wedding, a karate demonstration, a photography studio, or a climbing wall.
Thank you for your interest!

Festival Entertainment Director
