Kid's Costume Contest

Let's play dress up! Costume contests are fun for all ages, but this one is for infants, toddlers, children, preteens and teenagers. Show us your best costume, don't be shy... You could win a prize if you try! This event will be held at 12:00 pm on Saturday, August 31 at the Broadway stage.

Facial Hair Contest

Braid it. Wax it. Twirl it. Curl it. Show it off for a chance to win a prize in our Facial Hair Contest on Saturday, August 31 at 11:00 am at the Broadway Stage.

Parasol Duels

1... 2... 3... 4... Let's have a parasol war! (Well, a duel anyway!) Join the free fun and learn how to perform this "Rock, Paper, Scissors" style of dueling! This contest will be on Saturday, August 31 at 2:30 pm at the Broadway Stage.

Ribbon Scavenger Hunt

Volunteers, performers and vendors throughout the festival will have ribbons! They may make you sing a little jingle, or answer a riddle, but it's all in good fun. How many can you find?

You may pick up a ribbon holder for the scavenger hunt at the information desk. (The ribbon holder cost is $1, and is not included in an All-Access Pass.) As you wonder the festival, you'll find some people and vendors have free ribbons to hand out - like a scavenger hunt!

Teapot Racing

Scoring is based on appearance, fair play, humor, bribing, and race results! We have fun! Be prepared to smile a lot! Saturday at 1:30 in the Bird Street parking lot

Hat Contest

Show off your chapeau! Did you create it yourself, add accoutrements or even buy it from one of our vendors? Come show us how you have chosen to top off your ensemble. Win a prize for what's above your eyes!
