2018 Schedule

With the festival in Veteran field we are a little bit further away from downtown,so we will concentrate our efforts to the bird site, starting at 4 pm with family friendly activities – we haven’t made the program yet. Every hour we will burn a small wooden Phoenix.

In downtown there will be a pub crawl from 12 – 6 pm involving most of our pubs, and we will place musicians in the stores, and have Street performers.  At 6:30 we will have a procession going up the bike path from the Foundry building to the bird site. At 8 pm we will light the bird.

Shuttle buses will run continuously from 4 – 11 pm connecting downtown to bird site and Sears parking lot.

Just started putting together the  schedule. Much more to come.

DJ Blackjack Shellac – And you thought vinyl was old school. Welcome to your pre-vinyl DJ experience! DJ Blackjack Shellac uses hand-cranked record players with gears, springs, steel needles and pure acoustics to bring original recordings to life. Played just as they were meant to be heard. No MP3’s. No CD’s. Just revolutions – 78 revolutions per minute – the speed at which time travel becomes possible. But remember, these are OLD records. Fragile. Irreplaceable. So be careful…there may be dancing!
