Other acts include That 1 Guy, who incorporates humor and magic into his show, and Red Mountain, a local band that fills the stage with instruments and costumes. There will be community yoga, led by Yoga North, and a Peace Run to raise money for the Just For the Fun of It dances.

Charity Huot, Maddy Siiter, Biochemical Characters, Wood Blind, Black River Revue, Gentlemen’s Anti-Temperance League and Clocks and Clouds play the KUMD stage.

There will be live animals, a farmer’s market, demonstrations and exhibits.

The festival is free until 4 p.m., and admission is a donation for the evening events. A limited number of advance tickets can be reserved starting at 10 a.m. Friday at
