On the Stages

During the three days of the Festival we keep two stages going full time, generally limiting performances to 15 minutes.  There’s always something interesting going on, or about to go on.

The Main Stage has raised theater-type seating for 1900 people and a raised platform stage, complete with lighting and sound systems.

The Interactive Stage is set amid tables and chairs with ambient lighting and a sound system.  We encourage the interactive stage performers to teach a dance as part of their performance and often the dance area is filled with audience members trying to figure out what to do with their arms and legs.

For many of our groups the interactive stage is where the “kids” perform while the “adults” perform on the main stage.
