They get to keep their groovy creation! Thirty lucky little hippies will be chosen. One grand prize winner will be pulled from all entries collected and will receive a Calamity & Crowe’s Trading Post gift certificate (a $250 value) which will be good toward their own t-home kids’ tie-dye workshop!

Look for Rockin’ Ron at the Festival on Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, July 31 from 11am-3pm each day!
Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate has performed his entertaining and educational pirate act throughout Northeastern North America at schools. libraries, and events. His sing-along, move-along songs are full of nautical references and boatloads of wordplay that appeal to all ages. In March 2016 Seven Days wrote “Rockin’ Ron writes pleasant, often punny sea shanties that leave kiddos smiling and, as importantly, don’t drive parents to walk the plank.” About the song Black Snake Tale, they added “the singsong melody should appeal to old salts of any age.”

Pull up a chair and create a Scribble Bot from a motor and a battery, and take some cool art home with you (ages 8+) or make a flying contraption to test in the Wind Tube (all ages).
