1:00 – 5:00 pm, near merch tent
The aerial dancers from Turners Circus are returning to the Folk Fest! From a freestanding rig positioned near the merch tent and main lawn, performers of all ages and skill levels will provide ambiance performances, taking turns on aerial fabric (silk), static trapeze, hoop (lyra), rope, and Spanish web. Throughout the park, ground performers will also provide juggling, hoop, poi, unicycling, stilts, acro, or other entertainment for artistic appeal.
Turners’ motto "Sound Mind, Sound Body" supports health and wellness, a prominent theme of the festival. Turners was founded on the principles of improving our democracy by promoting freedom and equality for all humanity, health and physical education, cultural education, and rational thinking--in order to advance the health, happiness and progress of humankind. It emphasizes intellectual, cultural growth, and moral character through special classes under qualified and competent instructors. It recognizes the family's integral role and the harmonious education of the body and mind as the foundation of our communities.
