Entertainment

Enjoy a day full of live music from Kids Imagine Nation, Jelly of the Month Club, Geezer, and more. It doesn't end with music, take in puppet shows, flower crown making, science and magic shows, bounce houses, photo booths, and so, so, much more.

Jelly of the Month Club started when Todd Forman (Sublime) and Bert Susanka (The Ziggens/Astronaut Love triangle) had the idea of putting together a super group combined with different members of bands they had both played with over the years. 


The main focus is on writing fun G rated music, the type of fun for the whole family! They have songs ranging from stories about making friends, to a song about waffles. 

 

KIN is a Musical Group (live shows and web series), with original songs and stories that entertain and inspire kids to always use their imagination, and always lend a hand to friends in need!
 
 

Geezer is the most rocking Weezer and 90s cover band we know. And yes, they do the whole show dressed as old dudes. It’s awesome.
