In addition this year we will be hosting a “Children of the Festival Showcase” on Saturday morning starting at 10am. The children, aged 5 to 10 inclusive, will gather under the tent for a fun-filled musical experience. There will be showcase leaders who will teach them a song, assist them in making an instrument and lead them in a dancing lesson. The children will then perform on stage at the Hughie Martell Open Mic session!
