Berry Moon's specially blended gluten-free frozen yogurts satisfy sweet cravings with a kaleidoscope of low-fat and nonfat flavors, including rotating favorites such as snickerdoodle and red velvet. Lively pink and green walls lure customers toward self-serve stations stocked with cups of various sizes, which they can fill with one flavor or thousands of microscopic drops of each to create van Gogh–like self-portraits. A buffet of sweet mixings such as cookie dough, sprinkles, and fruit, plus chocolate, caramel, and other sauces, adds another dimension to the yogurt creations, which weigh in by the ounce.

There, artists from around the country provide education on specific topics in classes such as Intro to Metalsmithing and Wire Weaving, where guests learn the craftiest way to escape prison. Free demonstrations, book signings, and other attractions round out the fest's collection of creative attractions.
