Booth Demonstrations

Many festival exhibitors offer ongoing tastes and samples of their wonderful products at their booths. A few provide more elaborate demonstrations and scheduled workshops. Agriculture, Artist, and Local Livelihood demonstrations at booths are ongoing all weekend at the exhibitor’s discretion unless otherwise indicated as scheduled.  The location of booths with demos can be found on the easels with white boards throughout the festival site.
