Funhouse Fest | Past Festivals

After three great years in Williamsburg, we have decided to put Funhouse Fest on hiatus in 2019.  We’re grateful to everyone at the Virginia Arts Festival, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the city of Williamsburg, the artists, the vendors and especially all the fans who joined to help us create so many memories together.  Bruce will spend the new year dedicating himself to some ambitious new projects while our friends at Virginia Arts Festival will continue to bring exciting performances to Colonial Williamsburg this summer.  We can’t thank you enough for all your support and look forward to sharing updates with you soon!
