Admission is not charged to attend the event, which kicks off at 7 p.m. Aug. 30 with musical performances.
Saturday morning, the festival begins at 10 a.m. with a washer tournament for cash followed by a flip flop decorating contest, the annual "Fling Flong" contest and a kid zone with activities including games, prizes and face painting.
Food and shopping vendors, a biergarten and barbecue cook-off along with live bands and dancing performances are among the many other offerings.
The Flip Flop Festival will end with popular country-rock band, Reckless Kelly.
