“This event has really caught on with not only visitors, but musicians from all over the state”, says Craig Common, event co-organizer and owner of The Common Grill. “We get calls all year from people who want to try out and be a part of our success. We expect to see a lot of talented performers again at this year’s auditions.”There are 70 paying spots available on the schedule. Auditions are open to musicians, singer/song-writers, jugglers, magicians, performers, dance troupes, artists, and other street arts performers, and will be judged before a panel of local artists, committee members and merchants. Performers should be prepared to share a 3-5 minute sample performances in front of these judges. Selected performers can sign on for a number of performances throughout the summer.
