Come celebrate the 10th Annual StrangeCreek Campout at Camp KeeWanee in Greenfield, MA. Brought to you by the kind folks at Wormtown Trading, this year's StrangeCreek will be better than ever with an outstanding musical line-up headlined by Max Creek, Strangefolk, and Donna the Buffalo. The weekend will also feature 80 musical acts including; Ryan Montbleau Band, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Toubab Krewe, Kung Fu, Jimkata, Dopapod, Adam Ezra Group, Cabinet, The Alchemystics, Van Martin, Rhythm Inc, The McLovins, and many, many more! Additionally, several bands were just added through their victory at the StrangeCreek Battle of the Bands. Congratulations to Rebel Alliance, The Jauntee, and Relative Souls!

In addition to great music, StrangeCreek also features three nights of wooded camping, FireWormz fire spinning show, food and crafts vendors, community bonfire, cabin jams, roaming entertainers, and plenty of good times. Coolers & Grills are welcome. This event sold out last year, and has become a staple of the festival calendar. Many folks view the StrangeCreek Campout as the start of festival season, when the Northeast's music fans bask in the sunshine and music at Camp KeeWanee.

The StrangeCreek experience embodies a true sense of community and compassion in a beautiful, scenic setting. There is something for everyone at this festival, where culture and diversity are celebrated through music, nature, and the people that gather. StrangeCreek is very much a family-friendly festival. The Fest has a special Kid's Cabin, featuring arts and crafts, face painting, and more. A big part of the StrangeCreek experience involves giving back. A portion of the festival's proceeds go back to Camp KeeWanee - a summer day camp for children. Camp KeeWanee provides a safe, nurturing environment for children where they develop self-esteem through exploring nature and the arts.

Other beneficiaries of StrangeCreek include the town of Greenfield, and Camp Quinebaug, a summer camp for children and young adults with special needs.

Strangers Helping Strangers will once again host a food drive for the Franklin County Community Meals Program.
