Amateur Hour

The Amateur Hour is a nightly event which represents a variety of talented young people from the
Tri-State area.  Over 100 acts are judged several weeks prior to the Festival at Mater Dei High School,
and are narrowed down to top scored acts to compete at the festival.  Nightly winners in each division
will compete for the title on Friday at 7:00 P.M. on the Main Stage.  Tryouts will be announced this summer but are typically in Mid-August and held at Mater Dei High School.
