Things To Do

Kids Zone

Hope’s Closet will be running Via Bambini for 2022. The proceeds of Via Bambini will go to benefit their charity. Hope’s Closet –

Started by Angela Bischoff and run with the help of Jen Mortenson, Hope’s Closet relies entirely on donations and volunteers to provide foster and adoptive children with clothing and other necessities free of charge.

Angela and Jen have created a place where foster kids and parents can shop for things they like and need without worry about judgment. There is no charge for these items and the entire shop is built on donations from the community.


Maker 13 Stem Zone

Maker 13 has been providing amazing experiences for festival goers for years. With their immersive Maker trailer, festival attendees can delight in just the art of making! Maker13 is a community-based non-profit workshop that gives individuals and small businesses access to tools, training, and knowledge to create new ideas, start new businesses, create local art, and drive an interest in advanced manufacturing. Their 32ft mobile classroom and workshop acts as an onsite field trip for schools, fairs, club events, or even corporate gatherings. They strive to connect our community to organizations using maker equipment or advance manufacturing processes and potentially make employment connections.

ShadowBrite Cosplay

Hi! My name is Jenn, aka ShadowBrite, and I am an avid cosplayer and crafter! Currently I’m mostly making resin art pieces, but I also hand sew small plush dragons, as well as make different cosplay accessories. Cosplay is a huge part of my life and I have nurtured a growing cosplay community dedicated to cos-positivity and inclusiveness. Cosplay has also been a life saver in terms of my own mental health and I strongly advocate Mental Health Awareness with my platform as a human, and as a cosplayer. So stop by, say hi, and take a look at my wares ^.^
