Festival Experience

This is also much more than a music festival. Other activities include camping; a variety of food vendors with festival favorites such as funnel cake, pretzel braids, ice cream, jerk chicken, and more;  a kids' zone on Saturday (for toddlers through age 11) with games, a bouncy house, face painting plus other fun activities; a petting zoo with adorable free-roaming animals with both large and small; and vendors with a large selection of apparel and merchandise.

Visit the Uprise Fest website to purchase tickets. In addition to general admission tickets, there are special packages and add-ons available, including meet and greets, seating upgrades, and seminars.
