Get Involved in the Extravaganza!

The 2021 show season has begun, and there are many opportunities to participate! This year, BareBones, in partnership with Festival de las Calaveras, is doing a one day event, Sunday October 31st. It will include a Community Pageant Procession beginning in Powderhorn Park, leading to Festival de las Calaveras at Chicago and Lake Street, followed by an evening concert and Cabaret. Check out all of the job calls, volunteer needs, and community events!
