Tickets can be purchased online on the festival’s website ( Until June 15, buyers get a $10 discount, which means they pay only $65 for the day-long event. Available classes—included with admission—are listed on the festival’s website.

“This is the first year we’ve had online sign-ups for classes,” said Victoria Trimmer, event director for the festival. “If people want to make sure they get to attend their favorite classes, they should sign up as early as possible. We sold out last year, and we’re looking for another sold-out event this year. I hate the idea of someone showing up and not being able to get a ticket, but once they’re gone, they’re gone.”
