Maplewoodstock Attendee Survey

In order to get a better sense of the attendees of our annual Maplewoodstock Music and Arts Festival, we’d like to ask you to fill out this short survey.

As you know, this free, two-day festival is organized by a nine member volunteer group funded by the money we raise every year from our sponsors and vendors. We aim to continue to offer the best free two days of music of and for the community, and we’d like your input.

You can take this survey anonymously, but if you’d like to leave your contact information, we will randomly draw one submission to win a Maplewoodstock Merch Package: a water bottle, a mask, a t-shirt (subject to size availability), and a tote bag.

Take the survey now.

Maplewoodstock postponed to Oct 2-3, 2021:

We hope you are all holding up as these unprecedented times continue and that you are surviving this winter. It is with some sadness, but also some optimism, that we have decided to postpone Maplewoodstock 2021 until the weekend of October 2-3.

While we are all encouraged by the fact that vaccines are now being rolled out, we are also concerned about the variants that are surfacing. Obviously, these thoughts are with us all, regardless of the context. However, with regards to Maplewoodstock, we are cautiously optimistic that come October we will be able to put on the event, even if it may be a bit different than in prior years.Of course, all of this depends on the federal, state, and local mandates that may or may not be in place at that time.

We also need to say that as of today (Feb 16, 2021) it is still far too early to determine what the world will look like in October. We make this announcement with the understand that we still may need to cancel the event, but at the same time given the timing of funding, booking acts, getting vendors, ordering merchandise, etc. (which will all be managed differently this year) we need to make certain decisions now. We are confident that pushing the event to October will give us the necessary time to make a safe and informed decision.

Please be safe, and we hope to see you soon.

OLDER NEWS:

Maplewoodstock 2020 canceled

After much discussion the Maplewoodstock Volunteer Committee has decided to cancel Maplewoodstock 2020.  We originally (back in April 2020) postponed from July to October, but now need to cancel the 2020 festival altogether.

We, of course, are very disappointed to share this news. The committee discussed many alternatives.  However, as the health and safety of our community, bands, artists, vendors, partners, township employees and volunteers must be our top priority, we feel very strongly that this is the right direction.

We are reaching out to the community and our artists, bands, and vendors to share this news.  We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.

Thanks to all the people who came out for our 2019 festival: musicians, vendors, volunteers, attendees, public safety and public works crews, etc. The nine-member Maplewoodstock Organizing Committee will be taking a few days off to recover before starting planning our 2020 event.

Watch our social media sites for some more updates of photos/videos in the coming weeks.

Folks, the nine volunteers behind the Maplewoodstock could not be more proud of the annual two-day free festival we bring to our community every year. Known or not, we raise nearly 100% of the funds to power this festival every single year — hiring a professional sound stage, booking headline acts, manufacturing t-shirts, etc. Your support — your purchase of our t-shirts, your support of our advertisers and sponsors, your patronage of our arts and food vendors — make this festival possible.

If you would like to sponsor or advertise with us, please see our SPONSORSHIP page.

We also gratefully take donations via the donation button above the ads on this page.
