This Labor Day Weekend, August 31, September 1-2, 2018 will mark the 6th Annual Cornstock Folk Festival, a three day celebration of bluegrass and roots music. The festival boasts stage shows, workshops, camping, kids’ activities, indie-crafts, regional artists, food vendors, yoga, lots of jamming, and of course the cool crisp Tunkhannock Creek. The show goes on rain or shine.
The festival is set in the pristine mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania at Lazy Brook Park just east of Tunkhannock on Rt. 6. Known as the gateway to the Endless Mountains, you’ll see some of Pennsylvania’s most beautiful scenery right from your campsite.
Cornstock was founded to preserve folk and acoustic music -- the "greenest" form of music -- and to further the arts in northeast Pennsylvania. Cornstock is a time to come together with kindred music lovers and players for a truly organic musical experience.
We want to make sure acoustic music is around for generations to come, so kids 15 and under are free. Bring your good vibes and instruments and join in the movement.
The festival site is 22 miles west of Scranton and 3 miles east of Tunkhannock, PA on Rt. 6 at the intersection of Rt. 6 and Rt. 92 directly across from Deer Park Lumber.
Please be aware that some GPS offer bad directions. The festival is located directly off of Rt. 6. Do not turn off the main road until you reach the festival site.

Lazy Brook Park is surrounded by some of Pennsylvania’s most stunning natural beauty. The best way to experience Cornstock is to camp all weekend. Stay and dance under the stars, jam by the campfire, and go for an early morning dip in the crystal clear Tunkhannock Creek. See the campground map here.
The gate opens Thursday at 5 pm, Friday at 9 am, Saturday at 9 am, and Sunday at 10 am. Check out is Monday at 11 am. Primitive camping is included with the purchase of a weekend pass or multiple day passes. Day ticket buyers must park in day parking unless they purchase multiple days or a camping pass add-on. All sites are first-come, first-served. The park grounds feature flat, grassy, open and shaded spaces perfect for tent camping and quick, easy parking and leveling for your camper or RV. Friendly pets are permitted in the camping areas and should be leashed.
There are a limited number of electric hookups available for an additional $30-$45 fee. See the campground map here for Electric Camping Zones. Zones 1 and 2 are $45. Zones 3, 4, and 5 are $30. One RV is allowed per electric pass. Go to our Tickets page to purchase an electric site. All sites are 120 Volts, so bring your adapter. AC use is not possible due to the park's electric system limitations.
Water fill is available on site, and port-o-lavs are conveniently located throughout the park. Ice and firewood will be available for purchase. Please note there are no showers and no RV pumping station on site. Cozy Creek Campground is located 1.5 miles from the festival grounds and offers RV pumping for $20 and a daily shower pass for $8.
Please respect the park. Fires are only allowed in fire rings (not provided). Remember to clean up after yourselves and your pets. Please take your garbage and recycling to the dumpster on your way out. We aim to leave Lazy Brook Park just as beautiful as we found it.
If camping isn’t ideal for you, be sure to check out The Prince Hotel in Tunkhannock. Ask for the Cornstock rate.
