CARNIVAL BOOTHS

Enjoy a variety of carnival activities hosted by local clubs

HOST A CARNIVAL BOOTH

Register your student club, nonprofit, booster club, etc. to participate in the form of a carnival booth. Here's how it works:

1. Host a carnival-themed booth. There is no fee to participate but you must be an established group or 501c3. For-profit vendors will be charged the standard vendor fee of $100.

2. Charge a small fee for attendees' participation 

3. Keep any funds you raise


PUMPKIN RACE

The Marana-Foothills Optimist Club will be hosting a pumpkin race for all ages. Decorate a pumpkin, add a wheel kit and, enter the race to see which is fastest! Winners will receive medals and certificate of entry. Check back soon for more details.


LIVE MUSIC

After dinner the sun starts to go down and the stage opens up for music and dancing. All ages are welcome in the beer garden (must be 21+ to purchase alcohol) to enjoy the festivities. Come back soon for more details about our artists.

6:00 P.M. - 6:30 P.M.
MCMT Community Choir

This choir consists of residents from around Marana ages 13 and up. It's a free choir that hopes to bring the arts to the community in a tangible and fun way. They will be performing several pieces to kick start our live music

 

6:45P.M. - 9:00 P.M.
Chris Graeber

Nashville influenced singer and songwriter Chris Graeber comes by his music naturally, growing up in the rolling hills of the Ozark Mountains in a town called Fayetteville, Arkansas. Chris has brought his music, planted roots and now calls Tucson, Arizona his home.  Chris' soothing voice wins over a crowd immediately, with tones similar to Billy Currington, and Thomas Rhett, but really keeps the crowds attention when he explodes into song with rich intense vocals similar to Luke Combs and Justin Moore. Chris Graeber and his band come equipped with nothing short of veteran experience from all members.  It's safe to say that anyone who goes to see the Chris Graeber Band live will not be disappointed by the electrifying experience.
