Stage II

Stage II is located in the center of the Fine Art and Craft Show – an ideal location for Festival-goers to shop AND listen to great music. Stage II features many of the same performers who play on the Eric Stein Stage, but in a more intimate, relaxed setting, allowing them to connect closely with audiences. Look for special performances that only happen on Stage II.

Arty’s Stage

Music, dancing, puppets, interactive songs, imagination, laughter, curiosity, and science all come together under one tent, designed specifically for the young and young at heart.
