As part of the annual “clean up,” we will be purging the user database. If you logged in during the festival, you don’t need to do anything. Your user account will remain active. We do this annually to keep our user database clean. As we send periodic updates throughout the year, we don’t want to be emailing people who are not interested in receiving these communications. This purge also helps us better control spammers and other potential security issues.

Comments will also be closed on all posts as a means of controlling spam. If you have questions regarding the festival, please email us at
