"We are having continuous live entertainment throughout the festival," says Neil Cutler, a Tropical Daze organizer. "In between the main stage musical sets, festival goers will enjoy performances from local entertainers on a second stage. Acts should be about 15 or 20 minutes long."
The two-day festival features tropical entertainment, food and more than 75 tropical-themed vendors. A free children's activity area with hands-on games and arts and crafts makes it perfect for families with young children.
All proceeds from Tropical Daze will benefit First 5/Conejo Valley Neighborhood for Learning (CV NfL) and its efforts to prepare children ages 0 to five for school and encourage family involvement. It offers child and parenting classes at six sites throughout the Conejo Valley. CV NfL's activity area at Tropical Daze will feature bubbles, hula-hoops and climbing area especially designed for preschoolers. Conejo Recreation and Park District (CRPD) will have its own area of hands-on activities.
The festival is presented in collaboration with the Conejo Recreation & Park District, the City of Thousand Oaks and the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Tropical Daze is seeking bands, singers and solo acts. For more information, contact Cutler at 818-991-8386, neil.cutler@
