This year we hosted a smaller — but still mighty — festival in Ybor City, Tampa, featuring 13 companies performing a variety of shows from July 29 – August 8. Shows ranged from comedy to improv, storytelling to theatre!

To make things extra magical we transformed the HCC Ybor YPAB building into a magical grotto — an escape from the usual, including a refreshments cabin. Thanks to all our sponsors for making the festival possible, and special thanks to Not Axe Murderers and Ronald Kennedy MD for their donations!
