Okee reps on performers:  Through our travels from here to Timbuktu we’ve established a vast, intricate network of revelers, weirdoes and general merry-makers of all shapes and sizes. What party wouldn’t be enhanced by a healthy influx of fire swallowers, costumed paraders, and shark jugglers? Our point exactly. We promise a wide variety of eccentric weirdness and late night variety shows which will make the weirdest of you all seem quite vanilla.

The experience promised can be articulated but you really just have to be there to appreciate the work, collaboration, and dedication put into this thing.  The whole event is going down in sunny Florida’s Sunshine Grove.  The Grove is in the center of the festival grounds, the nucleus of the action, and hosts our three main stages that are nested in the subtropical tree-line.
