Non Profit Organization Registration

The 2020 Festival will include our fifth annual Community Cause-Way.  This is a specific area for non-profit organizations only on Saturday & Sunday. You will have a designated spot where you can tell your story, market your organization and fund raise. And you are invited to participate as our guest. Which means no fee to participate! The only thing we ask in return is to offer an interactive family fun activity. This can be a fun way to share your mission with the community and attract festival goers directly to your space!

Apply Now, however, the Cause-Way is limited to 20 spots that are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. This is not an application, all local non profits are welcome to register while spots remain open. The online registration form will be disabled when all spots are filled.
