Prices are typical for Festivals. The great part is each food vendor must donate a portion of their sales to the SAL Foundation for charity. Every dollar you spend on food, helps someone in need.

The Festival will offer a number of children’s, adult and family events and activities, axe throwing, face-painting, music, clowns, magic, character meet-and-greets, an interactive fire engine exhibition, arts and crafts, and pirate fun. A few games in Pirate Cove are free for little ones. Rides are fee based. Click here: http://www.lionsfestival.com/activities/

We have a full slate of music lined up. Expect to hear Jazz, Latin, Country, Folk, Classic Rock, Motown and Contemporary. For times and locations of all shows, click here: http://www.lionsfestival.com/entertainment/
