See our community perform on the Entertainment Stage: music, drama, singing, circus club performances, storytelling and more.


Children’s Maypole Dance  (time: 12:00 noon / location: Street Stage)
The iconic focus of May Fair is the children’s maypole dance, a tradition started centuries ago. The maypole bears garlands and is a symbol for growth and the Spring. The 4th grade will weave the maypole ribbons in complex dance patterns to the musical accompaniment of the 5th grade. In the participation round, younger children are invited to partner with the 4th graders to wind and weave the maypole.
