Boomtown Fair rolls into town, it's an expansive collaboration of music, entertainment, activities, art & tradition. The legend of Boomtown tells it was once a small but prosperous retreat now changed into a land of lawless rebels while town officials work to uphold its former glory. Boomtown will be pulsing with performances in every festival side street.
