Letter to festival performers.


The festival has a profit-sharing scheme for daytime performers. Each year performers are offered a share of the festival proftis in addition to a full festival pass. Each performer will have a choice between donating their talents or receiving a single share of festival profits, regardless of how many times they perform. Groups with more than five members will be eligible for only five shares total. Those who perform for less than a full 50-minute slot (for example, in the Variety Show) will be eligible for a festival pass only. The number of passes available for large groups will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

For Vendors

The festival also has a few spaces available for vendors each year. Priority is given to artisans who sell their own work. If you own or work at an business or organization and would like to consider vending at this year's festival, contact the vendor coordinator Maureen Costello.

The 28th annual festival will take place March 23 & 24, 2018
