This year we are hosting a smaller but still mighty festival in Ybor City, Tampa, at the Hillsborough Community College Ybor YPAB building. We will be featuring 13 companies performing a variety of shows from July 29 – August 8, in two venues. Shows will range from comedy to improv, storytelling to theatre!

To make things extra magical for your experience, we will be transforming the building into a magical grotto, an escape from the usual in Tampa, including a refreshments cabin.
