A trolley transports visitors to the festival from several points along Bridge Street.
After exploring all the festival's offerings, venture into the heart of downtown, where you can shop for unique artisan creations at Tickle My Senses, Oxford Hall Celtic Shop, and The Gallery on Bridge. Quench your thirst with a drink at Dead Lightning Distillery or enjoy Ever Grain brews and wood-fired pizzas at Wild Rabbit Pies & Pints. Hanna's Ice Cream Shoppe is the perfect stop for a cooling treat. Check out the schedule at the recently remodeled West Shore Theatre, where you can end your day with a film or musical performance.
