In past years, the festival was free whenever it screened on the grassy hill behind the Walker. But when it moved to the State Fair’s Grandstand in 2013, festival-goers had to pay.
The festival started in 2012 as something of a lark, but it was so incredibly popular that it’s since grown into an event, drawing huge crowds and spawning international tours of the program.MORE NEWS: Wisconsin Gov. Evers Calls GOP-Ordered Election Probe A '$700,000 Boondoggle'
