The Festival Club is free to enter. Buy a beer and settle in to an easy chair pre-show, or just drop in after work.

Each evening we will be hosting artist conversations in the Ping Pong Pit. Come down for a happy hour drink, and be audience to a live conversation and ping pong match, as guest artists speak about their work while playing a round of table tennis. The interviewer will play umpire and the artists will be playing to win.

A guest barber will also be controlling The Barber’s Chair as two of our guests intimately discuss their work over a haircut.
