Pick Your Prize Raffle

Take a chance at winning the prize of your dreams from this year’s great offerings. Tickets are just $1 each and will be sold online in advance of the Festival and onsite on Festival day.

We are still developing our 2021 prize list–and the PYP Raffle didn’t happen in 2020, like so many other things–so check out our 2019 prizes below to see what you don’t want to miss!
