The Spinstock Flow Arts Festival is returning to Coleman Memorial Park on Saturday, June 8.

This family-friendly event is free to attend, and it will feature a variety of outdoor activities and performances that will showcase the beauty of flow arts.

The 10th annual festival, which is part of the Year of the Arts in the Lebanon Valley, will kick off at noon and run until 9 p.m.

Professional flow artists from the Mid-Atlantic region will use hula hoops, juggling objects, ribbon wands, fans, and other flow props, as well as dancing and martial arts, all accompanied by music to entertain audiences.

The festival’s lineup of professionals, which is subject to change, is as follows:

  • 12 p.m.: Community Drum Circle
  • 1 p.m.: Hula Hoop with Allison Graf
  • 2 p.m.: Scarlet Orchid Belly Dance Troupe
  • 3 p.m.: Buugeng with Ginger Betz
  • 4 p.m.: Poi with Flow Hippie
  • 5 p.m.: Open Stage for Festival Goers
  • 6 p.m.: Kung Fu with Vandon Tricamo
  • 7 p.m.: Hula Hoop with Lori Kahlman
  • 8 p.m.: Leviwand with Flow Hippie
  • 1:30, 3:30, 5:30, & 7:30 p.m.: Papa Tater Magic Show

Following each performance, professionals will offer audience members a complimentary beginner workshop where they can acquire and practice new skills.

All festival long, DJ Chord & Friends will play dance music on the main field and encourage free flow so audience members can become performers themselves.

Around the festival grounds, there will be activity stations set up to give all festival goers an opportunity to try out hula hoops, ribbon wands, and poi socks. In addition, games, Spinstock’s iconic giant bubbles, face painting, and a community art project will be available.

Parking is located next to Coleman Memorial Park, 1400 W. Maple St., Lebanon. People can bring blankets and lawn chairs to sit and spend the day at the festival.

They can enjoy meals that include kid- and vegan-friendly options from Poncho’s Backyard Grubbin’, Island Thyme Grill, and other local food trucks. And then, they can enjoy sweet treats from Crazy Goat Coffee Company and Snowy Hawaiian Shaved Ice.

Patrons also have the option to bring their own food. The pavilions and shaded picnic grove serve as convenient areas to eat.

Festival goers can also shop festival clothing, flow props, art, and various gift items from over 60 vendors. There will also be massages and reflexology, henna art, hair tinsel and wraps, and tarot and rune readings available by purchase from local small businesses.

The festival is run by volunteers each year, and this year’s festival is sponsored by Earthworkers Landscaping, Lebanon County Commissioners, LebCo Bulletin, Making A Difference, Moon Dragon Fitness, Papa Tater Magic, Shay’s Vending, Visit Lebanon Valley, and Your Advertiser.
