Festival-goers can expect to see award winning films about nature, community building, adventure, conservation, water, wildlife, agriculture and local conservation programs.

There will be two shows, a Children & Youth Matinee and the Wild & Scenic Film Festival evening event. The Children & Youth Matinee will begin with live music provided by NorthWoods Strings students at 12:30pm, the films will begin at 1pm.

Tickets for the evening show are available now at Art Beat in Hayward, and are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Doors will open at 6pm, and films will begin at 7pm. Come early to visit the national sponsors table, register for door prizes, and view original art posters designed by Hayward High School art students inspired by the films.
