Maplewoodstock is thrilled to be partnering with local non-profit Together We Bloom to prioritize and strengthen disability inclusion and accessibility at this year’s event. SOMA’s diversity is its strength, and this includes neurodiversity and disability. Maplewoodstock has long had a deep commitment to creating a thoughtful, fun-filled event that is “off and for the community.” Maplewoodstock is committed to learning from the disability community and to centering their experiences.

Some of this year’s Accessibility and Disability Inclusion Supports:

  • Sensory-friendly Zone/Tent
  • Sensory Activation Vehicle
  • ASL interpretation with our up front “Deaf Access Area”
  • Accessible Seating Tent – a “Senior Tent” in partnership with SOMA’s Two Towns for All Ages
  • Physical accessibility information (available on website)
  • Accessible bathrooms
  • Maps and programs showing the locations of the above (available on website)

About Together We Bloom

The mission of Together We Bloom is to empower young children with disabilities and their families through equitable access to connection, communication, and community. The organization progresses this mission through two vital strategies:

  1. Providing sliding scale, neurodiversity-affirming speech and language therapy; and
  2. Working to transform our community into a place that is more inclusive and equitable for disabled and neurodivergent children
