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!
Jim was a “Founding Father” of Maplewoodstock back in 2004 and a tremendous contributor to the arts, entertainment, and recreation of MAPSO/SOMA for far more many years. He passed away in Jan 2023 at 80 years of age.
Some of us nine volunteer organizers had a video interview with Village Green NJ about the decision to postpone our free, two-day festival from July to October.
