Our Art Vendor Applications and KidZone Vendor Applications are open until May 29, 2023.  Our Food Vendors are SOLD OUT.

We are currently taking advertising and sponsorship applications, but we have limited spots in our stage banners, print brochure, etc.  Act now.  There is no deadline, but when we sell out of ad space, we are sold out.

T-shirt and other merchandise will go on sale around May 26, 2023.

Canopy Lottery will be for two weeks or so in early June.

As always, watch this space and our social media pages (icons are listed in the header of our website) for updates.

2023 Headliners and Featured Acts


The Maplewoodstock Festival is run by volunteers.  There are nine of us on the core Committee who do planning work year-round, and we also have lots of friends and neighbors who help pitch in for t-shirt sales, event set-up, traffic coordination, etc. to keep this festival a free two-day celebration of music and arts — of and for the MAPSO/SOMA community.  For insurance purposes we are required to have each volunteer sign a waiver.  If you are so kind to volunteer, you will hear back from us regarding when and where we would need you.  Until then:  rock on!
