Will there be live music?

Of course! Clinton Anderson will be playing a live acoustic set from 12pm to 4pm each day.

Can We Make Regular Smores?

It wouldn’t be a smores festival if you couldn’t? WindsorEats will have smores kits to rent. Why rent? Because in addition to the graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate, you’ll also get extendable forks and a mini tabletop fire pit for you to get your smorsing on.

Is there anything else I should know?

There will be a fire pit to sit around in case you were cold but still wanted to stay outside. Also, there will be plenty of games to play, from cornhole and giant jenga outside, to board games galore inside.
