There is something for everyone, be it foodie expo, craft fair, dancing, family fun or late night song circles. The dance tent starts with wake-up yoga and grooves until 2AM Friday and Saturday. The fest is accessible and ASL-interpreted.

Palate pleasers of all stripe line the midway, from Caribbean curries to Thai noodles to hand roasted coffees to Middle-eastern, Bavarian, Mexican, Cajun, Italian plus good ole American comfort food. Over 50 vendors display their wares much of it handmade or fair trade, emphasis on eco-friendly.
