FUN Stops

We feature FUN Stops as an exciting addition to our festivals. We invite your business or organization to host and staff a FUN Stop booth and provide an interactive family friendly activity (that children can participate in) as attendees make their way through the festival. This will be a rewarding and valuable opportunity for your business or organization to demonstrate your positive community involvement while also gaining high-level visibility with your presence at our events.
