The WHAT IF Festival is September 8, 2018, with select Experiences from throughout the region. Hours of operation for the 2018 Festival are 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Fees: Fees increase for applications after August 1. Imagination Celebration is a non-profit organization producing this celebration as a Day of Joy and Wow's for all ages - a day that draws thousands of us together to explore, investigate, experiment, learn something, stretch ourselves into something new, and engage with each other. This is a Festival designed to show off what you do while helping us be a stronger, more innovative, more creative, more curious, more engaged, more knowledgeable community. We collect booth fees to cover our costs for producing the event – street closures, security, barricades, marketing, printing, electricity, cleaning, trash. Thank you for choosing to participate and sharing what you do!
Please note: If you propose a surprising collaboration, something unusual, the Festival Team may sponsor your application and waive your participation fee.
* Though broadly inclusive, the Festival does not allow overtly political or religious subject matter.
NOT QUITE SURE YET? You know that you and/or your organization is doing something interesting, imaginative, innovative, but you are uncertain as to how that translates into an Interactive Experience. Contact us before going further with this application! Our Experience Committee will be happy to talk with you over the phone or meet with you and brainstorm on how you can have the maximum impact with your Experience at this year's Festival.
