The festival will feature “food and beverages at multiple points” throughout the event. Attendees will also have a chance to check out Troll Pub’s brand new patio bar that opens for the first time on Friday. The new patio bar doesn’t add additional seating outside, however, it will be permanent and will only close for the cold season, according to Emily Langhardt, director of guest relations at Troll Pub.

Performances are scheduled throughout the weekend, including The Naked Karate Girls on Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Party Punch Band on Saturday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Troll Pub’s house DJ, TJ Smooth, will host all weekend.

“We’ve partnered with Planned2Give Charities and have some awesome door prizes and raffles happening to benefit all of their amazing outlets,” stated the release. “This is going to be a family friendly, entertainment packed-event with something for everyone, and we’re looking forward to starting a tradition for years to come.”
