We are sad to report that Camp Creek 2020 has been postponed due to Coronavirus.

In an official statement on June 25th, the promoters made this announcement,

“It is with heavy hearts that we have made the difficult decision to cancel Camp Creek Odetah 2020. While we remained hopeful and diligent in our efforts to deliver a safe and magical weekend, it unfortunately is just not to be this year. A great deal of work and money have been put into this show and we are very disappointed that these efforts will not bring Camp Creek 2020 to fruition. Your support of Max Creek and the event has been overwhelming and comforting in these difficult days. To that end we offer all of you who have purchased wristbands, RV hookups, Popup camping and parking passes to date 2 options going forward;

1. We are happy to refund your purchase, OR

2. Again, ONLY to those who have purchased 2020 patronage to date; roll your purchase over to 2021 and Max Creek will perform a special private concert for you on Thursday Night, August 5th, 2021 at Odetah Camping Resort at NO additional charge from Camp Creek/Rider Productions or Odetah for staying the additional night. There will be no other camping allowed on Thursday night, it will be your private event!

NOTE: If you retain (roll over) your locked in 2020 purchase you will be automatically welcome at the 2021 event, the cost of 2021 will most likely increase due to the unrecoverable expenses incurred for the non 2020 event.

We look forward to Camp Creek Odetah August 6-8 2021 being a climactic Celebration of Max Creek’s 50th Anniversary and just can’t wait, we care about and love you all; be well, be safe, take care of each other and we will sing & dance together again soon. Peace and Harmony.
~Sally & John Rider and Max Creek

The organizers of Camp Creek are excited to hold Camp Creek once again at Odetah Camping Resort after a wildly successful festival last year. Creek Freeks (the endearing nickname for diehard Max Creek fans) of all ages will set up at Odetah Camping Resort, off Route 2 in Bozrah CT, for a weekend of camping, music, and fun. 

Camp Creek is one of the region’s longest-running camping festivals, and Max Creek, formed in 1971, is one of the Northeast’s most enduring touring bands. First organized in 1983 as Max Creek’s annual get-together for fans and friends, Camp Creek has shifted locations from Indian Lookout Country Club, its home from 1994-2016, to Odetah Camping Resort. The festival features long sets by Max Creek on Saturday and Sunday, with alternating acts on two nearby stages throughout the weekend.

Several of Max Creek’s side projects join the roster for this year’s Camp Creek. J. Stanley’s Drummers for Peace & Equality, Bill Carbone’s Frank Zappa tribute The Z3, Mark Mercier’s The Marks Brothers, and Scott Murawski’s Depth Quartet will all perform.

The festival lineup rounds out with returning friends Creamery Station and The Kings, plus new-this-year Adam Ezra Group, Wurliday, Bob Marley tribute Duppy Conquerors, Cold Chocolate, and The Decisions. The Creek family is so excited to bring their beloved “Creek Freeks” a festival to remember fondly for years to come.
