We've tried to keep our budget as low as possible to keep things affordable.

 

This is a labour of love for many of the organizers, performers, workshop leaders, and administration team who are working year-round on the festival. We do our best to compensate our talent as well as possible, but note that all parties are volunteering many hours to make this event as affordable as possible for the public. We are deeply grateful for all of our volunteers and community members who make the magic happen!! If you are able to donate extra on top of your ticket price, this will help us offset cheaper priced tickets for lower income folks and make the festival more sustainable. Many thanks!
 

Children under 7 attend for free.

Please note there is no children-specific programming, and you are responsible for your children at all times.
