Festival Description

Celebrating both the richness of the area’s history and the spirit of April Fool’s Day, the Fools Festival will combine elements of traditional arts/music festivals, carnivals, renaissance fairs and local bicentennial holidays, with an emphasis on the fake, absurd and mysterious. The Festival celebrates the anniversary of the end of the Clown Wars, one of several mythical events in local history to be explored through art, music and theatre as part of the Festival’s collaborative programming.

The Fools Festival will bring together artists, organizations and businesses in a multi-media, multi-venue, always surprising celebration with more than a dozen exciting events taking place April 1-5, including theatre, music, art exhibition and engaging activities for all ages. Many of the special exhibits, performances and activities will be free to the public, while others will have admission costs, varying from venue to venue. Passes providing free or discounted admission to all the festival’s events, as well as discounts at select local businesses will be available.

Festival Dates April 1 - 5, 2009
