Backpack Festival raises money for Serendipity, Collage & Potpourri, a nonprofit organization that provides backpacks and school supplies to local children. The event is celebrating its ninth year with performances from Amp Fiddler, Juan Atkins, Chick Flask, Michael Turner, and many more. New to this year's festival is the Kids Got Talent stage, part of the growing Kids Corner. Here, kid and parents are encouraged to get their hands dirty conducting science experiments, painting, learning ballet, and getting their bounce on in an inflatable castle.
