We’ll be back with Festival favorites such as the hands-on Makers Mecca, local artisans in Vendor Village, and the work of our year-round incubator in IngenuityLabs. Children of all ages can enjoy imaginative activities from the youth-focused Ingenuity Dreamland & Imaginarium, and adults can visit our late-night Ingenuity Cabaret for a taste of something a bit more raucous.

New in 2019 are sustainability-focused village IngenuityTree Isle, and Wellness Way on the never-before-seen third floor (!), where attendees can focus on the health of body (strap on some skates with RollinBuckeyez Foundation) plus mind, spirit and community.
