Who are you people, that you've been doing this for 27 years?

Read a little about the Festival's history, and the wonderful organizations that sponsor the event. I have a few more questions. How can I get in touch?
E-mail .

How can I help?

The Festival is an all-volunteer effort. All the organizers and people helping out at the Festival itself are volunteers, and so are all the great performers and workshop leaders! To volunteer, e-mail with your contact info and interests, or see here for more information.

See you there!!!
