Catalina Wine Mixer —described as a “fun, fun group,” hits the stage Friday/March 15.

This year’s festival theme is Small Town Big Festival and that rings true, taking into account how quickly Passports to Fun sold out.

Festival grounds are free to attend, and patrons can purchase armbands for $30 a piece on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at the carnivals ticket booth.

As for carnival rides, an old favorite is coming back, Music Express. And there is a new ride coming, Insanity 360.

There will also be a new petting zoo with farm animals and pony rides.

The NUFF Square Food Court features a variety of food from 18 nonprofit organizations. The event is a fundraiser for each organization and each booth offers something different.
