Bruce Bowey

Bruce Bowey is an award winning family entertainer that has been wowing audiences for decades with his comical blend of magic, ventriloquism and expert balloon twisting. He has performed with Raffi and Pete Seeger and at thousands of events in Berkshire County and surrounding states.


Otha Day

2:30pm - 3:30pm

Otha facilitates fun and lively drum circle events from the deep belief that rhythm has the power to build community, promote well-being, and create joy. He supports participants (from 2 to 1,200) as they understand the importance of rhythm in everything. The goal is knowing that "our heartbeat and breath is the rhythm of our soul and the pathway to our connection to everyone." Otha leads drum circles for all educational environments, corporate events, religious, spiritual, wellness, and community celebrations. Additionally, as someone passionate for social justice, Otha leads his signature "Drum2Talk: Rhythm, Relationships, and Race" workshop intensives using drums and in-depth conversation to support the healing and transformation of racial conflict.


Roger the Jester

3:30pm - 4:30pm

Caution: watching a Roger the Jestor performance may cause aching cheeks (from constant grinning), sore ribs (from uncontrollable guffaws) and watering eyes (from laughing to the point of tears). Good though.
