The Push Comedy Theater Presents Tales from the Campfire
Back patio, 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm
Push Comedy Theater presents a frightful night of comedy (or is it a hilarious night of frights). Tales from the Campfire has quickly become one of the Push’s biggest hits. With an audience suggestion, this talented group of improvisers will make up a series of gut-busting ghost story right before your eyes.

Dragonfly Tribal Dance Studio, 8 pm
Dragonfly Dancers will perform a mix of Egyptian and Lebanese style dancing. Guests will be encouraged to join in!

RVA Lightman
RVA Lightman is a “walking, talking sculpture” who creates a shared social environment in which people come together to participate through interactions with the artist. With the addition of video capture, the audience becomes an actual part of the artistic display.

Community Art
Make your mark by adding a wish or thought to a piece of driftwood that will become an important part of the closing event on 10/14.

Wishmobile Community Art Car
Visitors will work together to add their wishes for the community to the Hermitage Art Car.

While enjoying the bar and exploring the exhibition, add a fresh temporary tattoo to your Burning Man inspired ensemble, show off your hula hoop skills, play a game of giant Jenga, and more!
