Family Fun Fest

Family Fun Fest is held at The Hangar Theater on a Saturday during the month of March. This is an interactive musical movie experience open to everyone in the Ithaca community. This event is entirely planned and produced by EAC volunteers. If you are creative and like to come up with zany ideas for children, plan to volunteer . If you would rather support the event by running errands for supplies, or run a craft booth on the day of the show, volunteer as support crew. Whatever the degree of involvement you would like to offer, we will have a role for you!

Please contact Laura at if you would like to be a part of the Family Fun Fest production team.
