Please pass this around to anyone who might like to come participate. The
Folk School of Chattanooga will welcome any performers from outside of
Chattanooga, and offer warm hospitality throughout the day. The entire day
of MAINx24 is definitely worth the trip!
Call or email me with any questions: 423-779-6581

Performers may do acrobatics, animal tricks, balloon twisting, card tricks,
caricatures, clowning, comedy, contortions and escapes, dance, singing,
fiddling, fire eating, fire breathing, fortune-telling, juggling, magic,
mime and a mime variation where the artist performs as a living statue,
musical performance, puppeteering, snake charming, storytelling or recite
poetry or prose as a bard, street art such as sketching and painting,
street theatre, sword swallowing, and even put on a flea circus."
