Count Down

We are so excited to be returning to Cambridge for CropFest!! We are counting down the days.... are YOU? We have lots of exciting things planned for this weekend!

Show Us Your Creativity!


Our theme for this year's CropFest in Cambridge is Back to the 80's! We're getting ready to have some flashbacks! Who could forget big hair, rubik's cubes, leg warmers, cassette tapes, and Top Gun? Bring out those table decorations and/or dress up according to the theme.

The Parade of Fashions will happen on Friday night at 9:30pm. We can't wait to see where you go with your imagination and creativity. Totally tubular!!

CropFest Layout Contest

We are thrilled to have sponsoring the Layout Contest again this year.

Totally Awesome

Your layout for this contest must be 80's related. It could be the photo you choose, the use of a song lyric or title, or perhaps even a popular 80's saying. We're totally stoked to see the rad layouts that you submit!

Totally Rad
A Judges' Award will be presented to the best overall layout and this layout will be published in an upcoming issue of the magazine. YAY!! There will also be a People's Choice Award so all the Croppers will have a chance to vote for their favourite layout.
