A variety of events include 16 stages with live entertainment, games and activities, 250 artisan booths, food and beverages. Each weekend has its own theme, such as “Wine, Chocolate and Romance,” “Ye Old Pet Fest” and “Oktoberfest.” For children, there are more than 50 free activities, including the Fairy Wing Forest, or Dr. Thora Pandora’s Chemistry Experience, fairy wand and pirate tat making, Mermaid Cove, a petting zoo and the Secret Garden. Other children’s offerings include face painting, checkers, fencing, caricatures, and games such as Kings of the Log.
