BIG THANK YOU to CAF SPONSORS and VOLUNTEERS and ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED THEIR TIME, TALENTS AND LOVE TO OUR UNIQUE EVENT! It is with your help we are able to again donate to our YOUTH GROUPS AND MUSICIANS WHO LOST INSTRUMENTS IN 2017 FIRES!

The CAF is grateful for these groups who provide the festival with the
people power to
keep the festival running smoothly.
Their duties range from set up to clean up, security, staffing the gates,
organizing the raffle, handling money for beer and wine sales running the PARKING LOT SHUTTLE, etc.
