Don’t miss the 16th annual Maplewoostock - Antibalas will headline Day 1, with Sister Sparrow featured on Day 2, prior to headliners (and closing act) Turkuaz.

For full lineup please visit www.maplewoodstock.com

NOTE: Schedule subject to change. If weather interrupts the schedule we pick up the schedule as per the “clock.” In other words, if it pours rain from 4 pm to 5:45, we pick up the schedule with whatever band is scheduled to be playing at 5:45. However, we have a covered stage, so light or moderate rain won’t stop us.

Maplewoodstock also offers a Kid Zone with things like:

  • Happy Faces Face Painting

  • Kidz Corner

LGBTQ Family Photo Sessions

  • Carl Ellis Photography & Photo Booth Studios (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Carl Ellis Photography and Photo Booth Studios are offering a Family Photo special for LGBTQ families throughout June! Make an appointment and come prepared. I'll pose you and photograph you for about 15 minutes. I call this my supermini session. Afterward, I'll send you a link of about 8-10 images to choose your best. No worries if we didn't notice the crumbs in your beard or the chocolate stain on your daughters dress. I'll retouch it out! As well as any other faux pas. We keep this session simple. A plain white wall in my studio works best, but we can also step outside for some color. You'll receive the session and a 5x7 print for $30. If that's not enough for you, choose a larger package and enjoy a 25% discount! I'm holding June 22nd as Family Day. Walk-ins are welcome! For all other dates, please book your appointment right from my website. Happy Pride from my family to yours!

BOOK TALK & SIGNING w/ DARNELL L. MOORE

Moore will be speaking on and signing purchased copies of his memoir NO ASHES IN THE FIRE, a New York Times Notable Book of 2018 and cited by the New York Times Book Review as an Editor's Choice. A celebration of radical black love, this memoir tells Moore's life story, not just as a window into his own experiences, but as a testament to the lives of the black queer, transgender, and gender non-conforming individuals who have come before him. Moore reveals not just the pain of growing up as a gay black man but also the supreme joy that comes from finding your calling and embracing your true self. This event is free and open to the public, with no advance registration required.
