Wildflower Festival


Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival welcomes daredevil extraordinaire, Wacky Chad, for six shows on Performance Row, Saturday and Sunday, May 16-17, 2015. Laugh, gasp, cheer and hold your breath while stunt comedian Wacky Chad reaches heights of 9 feet on his pogo stick, rides a nine-foot tall unicycle and does handstands on a skateboard all while wearing a wireless headset microphone to interact with his crowd.Wacky Chad defies gravity by preforming backflips on his air-powered pogo stick, while throwing out the notion that these remarkable stunts take full concentration. For more than a decade, Wacky Chad has made thousands of people laugh while performing his variety of tricks. Beyond serving as a street performer around the world since 2004, Wacky Chad’s award-winning extreme pogo stick skills and charmingly funny jokes landed him a stellar invitation to the NFL Super Bowl XLVIII.
