This festival is always fantastic, but I think this year the organizers have outdone themselves. I want to go to everything! Of course I can’t so here are a few that may be of particular interest to you (and are, of course, to me). Click on the links for more information or, better yet, go to the festival’s main website to see the whole line-up and specifics as to time, place, and cost (most are free, but some aren’t and some require reservations).
