Those of us who have the pleasure of being on the Festival grounds year round know that there are certain signs that Festival season is almost here: vendors coming in to clean up their shoppes, performers rehearsing dances and fights, and -you guessed it- signs. Literal signs.
Directional signs, shoppe signs, parking signs…these signs don’t don’t stay on display all year. They come down during the off season so they stay nice and clean.
But the month of September is all about getting these signs out of storage and onto their posts- game signs, job faire signs, stage times, and colorful shoppe signs get uncovered, dusted off, and hung so that our awesome patrons can find their way around when they get here.
Signs are hung, finishing touches are being put on costumes, wedding benches are placed, and kitchens are being scrubbed. Delivery trucks and campers are arriving daily. Now we just need our favorite element: you guys! Fifteen days, huzzah!
