OPEN FIRE JAM CIRCLE – AT YOUR OWN RISK
We would like to invite fire dancers/performers to bring their gear and sign up to show their moves, commune and share, with like minded people. We will provide fuel.
Continuing with the MMOS mission of creating festival culture Moctoberfest invites everyone down for a good time, to meet old & new friends, converge and share, collaborate and create, dance and play together in public space.
The people in Tucson come from the broadest range of interests, cultural experience, generations, yet we live, work and play together. MoctoberFest is another playground to let loose, make fun of ourselves, and transform our tolerance into acceptance and to learn to be accepted… to be ourselves… to each create our own “flag” and wave it! We have lined up some of the best local talent in Tucson for a full day of entertainment and interactivity!
We encourage locals to come dressed up…Dress your best, dress like a fool… show us how you do it when you do it when you don’t care who cares… We may even have a fashion show and ask you to be a part of it. We will have a ”beach-side” photo studio for your pleasure and archives.
We are calling out to Volunteers and helpers for the event. Earn a free pass to get in and get on the behind the scenes crew and help us create this event. OR if you have an act you would like to bring to the main stage or Cabaret.
WE ARE ALSO CALLING OUT DUNKEES… If you’re a Tucson Celebrity, your fans would LOVE to dunk you. Volunteer or nominate someone that you want to see dropped into a tub of water!
