Working on the Festival!

Although the festival is several months away, we are all working hard behind the scenes. Lining up music and artists, working on setting up the volunteer management software, and working on grants are all some things going on right now.

If you’d like to get involved, please watch here for details.

Meanwhile, save the date!
