The organizers behind Camp Creek are excited for the return of the festival after a successful edition in 2021, also held in September after 2020’s weekend sadly had to be canceled due to the pandemic. 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. Jay Stanley’s Drummers for Peace & Equality, Bill Carbone’s Frank Zappa tribute The Z3, Mark Mercier’s The Marks Brothers, and Scott Murawski and Bill Carbone’s Bob Dylan tribute Rolling Thunder Revival will all perform.

The festival lineup rounds out with returning friends Cold Chocolate and The Kings, plus new-this-year ska/reggae outfit The Big Takeover, vocalist Mikaela Davis, indie-soul band Melt, New England-based Grateful Dead tribute Bearly Dead, and Connecticut’s own John Spignesi Band. The Creek family is so excited to bring their beloved “Creek Freeks” a festival to remember fondly for years to come, especially after such a difficult and bizarre two years.
