FUN FOR ALL
The festive celebration of Makers of all kinds will offer a wide variety of fun, hands-on activities at designated Makers Stations, where participants of all ages may tap into their own creative spirit and create something unique and beautiful of their own.

For those wishing to explore their creativity in greater depth, select artisans will be offering educational workshops. New this year, children will be thrilled to discover a Gingerbread Forest play area that will challenge them to create a 3-dimensional world with life-size “gingerbread” boxes. AND - performances including live music, dance and a special appearance by The Venardos Circus, rounding out a full day of family fun sure to engage all of the senses.
