We have an awesome team of ambassadors who will greet you at the registration desk when you arrive at the festival. Saturday morning you’ll be able to get your wristband, sign the waiver, and ask any questions. Ambassadors will be attending classes throughout the festival and they (as well as the organizers) are people you can go to at any point with questions, comments, concerns or hugs.

To register, you simply have to know your own name! When you bought your ticket we added you to a registration list that we have on hand at the check in desk. If you bought two tickets then please use the name of the person that bought the tickets at the registration desk.

The online schedule will have all the class times and descriptions. There will also be schedules available throughout the room so you can pick the right class. You do not have to preregister for specific classes. You just show up to the class if you can do the prerequisites for that class, there will always be an all levels class with no prereqs. If the class is not the right fit, you are welcome to switch but we encourage people to do so near the beginning of class. Please make sure you can complete the prereqs for each class you attend.

Join us Saturday night for the festival party! We will rock the night away with performances, acro olympics, dancing, and tons of ACRO! Party starts at 8 pm! You must have a festival ticket to attend the party. Party is at the same location as the festival.
