The heart and soul of the event resided in the captivating entertainment provided. The Vinyl Village DJ, Mark Davis, spun a mesmerizing selection of classic tunes.

Local food from 9th Street Diner is always a hit here in Central City, this time offering a menu inspired by the comfort foods of the 70s. Attendees indulged in a variety of mouthwatering treats that seamlessly tied into the event's nostalgic theme such as the Jerry Garcia Burger, cheese fondue, and special brownies.

The vendor booths further enriched the Far Out Fest experience. There were also some awesome vendors like The Historic Hippie, KimBoley Kreations, and Chrissy's Corner, offering some unique items for everyone. 

A definite highlight was the Vintage Far Out Fashion Show, featuring community models and vendors like It's a Vibe and Strawberry Cow Vintage. Models strutted their stuff, showcasing personal collections and available items for sale inside the Village Antique Mall.
