This is a one-day celebration of one of the world’s most treasured pop-culture films. It will feature dance lessons, movie performance dances by a professional dance company, live bands playing soul-filled hits from the 1960s, a variety of artisan vendors, food trucks, the alcohol garden with our local vineyards and breweries, selfie portraits from movie scenes, and the renowned Lake Lift Competition, where daring couples test their re-enactment skills of Baby and Johnny’s iconic water scene. We will punctuate the evening featuring the film screening under the stars.

The festival begins at 10 am with the night ending with the free admission showing of the movie at 8:15 pm. The festival will have a packed schedule of entertainment, activities, dancing, food, drinks and vendors. Stay tuned to our Facebook page and the festival’s website for additional information as the festival nears.
