Cost: $8 non-members / $6 members


DEADLINE for all submission categories is Wednesday, December 1st, 2010.


That's right - it's the TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY of Squeaky Wheel's Annual Dys(fun)ctional Holiday Party & Screening, a quirky, disturbing and funny way to kick off the holiday season. This year, this holiday extravaganza will take place at Squeaky Wheel on Saturday, Dec. 18th (8pm), featuring various artists & entertainers that celebrate the TRUE meaning of the holiday season (i.e. obnoxious relatives, crass consumerism, gluttonous feasts, and giving your Great-Aunt Edna a foot massage). Guest will be able to complete last minute holiday shopping at the gift auction & vendor booths, featuring special packages & crafts by local merchants and artists.

Between last years wacky magician and the extra special visit from the Abominable Snowman, we know it's going to be hard to beat last years shenanigans....but I think we've got it covered - we promise you won't be disappointed!
