Now Taking Credit Cards: You asked and we answered! We will now be accepting credit card payments at the Ticket Booth.
Food and Drink: Our special guest this year is Terzo Porchetteria – a Broders’ restaurant. They will be serving slow-roasted Italian pork sandwiches and bowls. We’re also welcoming Fair Faves, featuring mini-donuts, hand-cut fries, and cheese curds, and fresh smoothies from Wholesum Kitchen. LYNAS will be featuring pizza, hot dogs, ice cream, cookies, ice cold drinks, and healthy side options such as carrots and dip, apples, and baked snacks.
