You’ve got tunes, we’ve got stages and audiences with ears. Do you tickle those keys like a rock star? Do you sing like a siren, driving sailors to crush themselves upon rocky shores? Sound makes you ground, music is your main jam.

Are you in the circus, a burlesque dancer? Do you bring flavor to the sh’soup by roving with giant mushroom costumes? Do you want to create a miniature puppet performance that surprises passersby in the Enchanted Forest zone?

Calling all speed demon greasemonkey maker folks! Let’s bomb a thing with wheels (and brakes, yes) down a curvy hill!

REGISTER for the latest and greatest Daredevil Downhill Soapbox Derby of DOOM! (Just kidding about the “doom” part, insurance person…)

Jump on board the ship, all you builder/maker/helper types, as we set sail on the seas of creation! Apply to join our team, and animate this cacophonous dream. You’re the best! (Also—but you knew this—you can earn an extremely significant discount to the festival for fullfilling the Volunteer Agreement).

You make earrings from found pine cones, and the richest brownies this side of the Mississippi. You sling clothing made from cattails and died with mushroom inks. Bring your crafts and goods, food and noms!

Art Car folks, click here! You made a 42 foot tall puppet of a dust mite that breaths fire and glows only when approached with open eyes. You made a stop motion FILM about the life of a stone. You invented a monolithic musical instrument from old bike frames and brake cables!
