Why do we love this event so much?

It's a joyful time out, full of interesting things to see, do, and eat. Dogs are welcome (register them at the gate; we met the BEST dog, named Sirius Black, of course).

And, it's so much fun for the whole family.

Performances

There is so much talent here. Check the schedule, and make time to see the shows, listen to singers, and discover who is doing what around each corner!

Even if you are there all day, you won't be able to see it all. So try to make time for the performances you want to see (or, conversely, wander around and let serendipity find you).
