Fountain Stage 2017:
5 weekends of live music and Halloween Day
- 64 acts and over 75 hours of music
4 Weekends of Free Encounter Experiences
• 50 hours of experience with almost 200 trained Dream Interpreters, Artists, and from about 20 states and 4 countries
As an all volunteer event, The Fountain Stage did it all on a budget of just under $5,000: Lights, sound, and most of the staging are all donated. All volunteer labor and performance. Small stipends went to three people covering basic costs of travel and supplies.
We had 10 local sponsors including restaurants, and community services, and 3 sponsors from other states. Thank you to all who helped make this happen!

There is a petition to change the street food in Salem this coming October. This is what it says:
“Every October, Salem’s Haunted Happenings brings thousands of people to our city. During this busy time, the city contracts with Fiesta Shows as the exclusive vendor for food booths. The offerings are expensive and low quality “carnival food,” like fried dough and cotton candy. Not only is the food of poor quality and limited options, but the proceeds from these sales aren’t kept in Salem, as Fiesta is based out of New Hampshire. We are asking that the city and the mayor end the practice of contracting out to Fiesta Shows and focus instead on giving priority to local Salem vendors and restaurants. This will give people more, and healthier options during Haunted Happenings, as well as keep any proceeds within the city, where they can help boost the economy.”
