5. LOWER PRICE!!!  We are actually lowering our booth…what??? Yes, you heard us right…we are lowering the booth fee!
We are very excited about these changes and we hope you will be too!  See you in Old Town soon!

Rain or Shine–Bring your Pop-Up & have fun!

Rain, rain go away come again some other day.

Our festival is rain or shine, so unless we have severe weather, we are game on!

We have so many activities and fun events planned.
