Friday, August 2

5:30 p.m. • City Hall Pitch, Lower Church Street


Join us on the steps of City Hall as we proclaim the start of the most Foolish weekend of the year! In our 12th year, the Festival of Fools needs no introduction, but why pass up a reason to parade up Church Street wearing a jester hat? We agree. Join us on the steps of City Hall at 5:30, then parade your foolish-self up the street with our weekend troupe of performers, led by the funky tunes of Sammy Miller and The Congregation. That’s right, it’s going to be great!

And this parade is going places! It heads straight to A Foolish Frolic, where Sammy Miller, NANDA and Cimarron perform along side the Magic Hat Wall to Canvas.
