Cliffstock is and has always been a FREE ADMISSION art, music, & camping festival run 100% by its participants. All expenses are provided through donations from participants prior to the event. This means that the overall success of such an event rests largely on what YOU CONTRIBUTE. If you have never been to Cliffstock before....GO TO CLIFFSTOCK!!! This community event grows bigger and bigger every year and can only continue as such if YOU PARTICIPATE AND CONTRIBUTE. So crawl out from under that rock and get yourself over here to join the fun and be a part of an entire community of like-minded, artistic creators!

Every year since 2009, the good people of Cliffstock have set up camp right on the edge of a beautiful cliff in South Milwaukee that overlooks good ol' lake Michigan. There is artwork and jewelry for sale and on display, all made by local artists (that's you!), not to mention our stage where we will have live music playing all weekend long!

THE WHOLE IDEA is to help promote local up and coming artists by providing a place to demonstrate their hard work to those who would appreciate it most.

ALL VENDORS are required to make a donation of their product or service (a piece of artwork, jewelry, etc.). A limited number of dedicated vending spaces are also available in return for a donation of a product or service of $15 value or more. Each item will be offered as a reward to supporters in return for contributing to our donation fund and will be available for collection at the time of the event.

ALL PERFORMANCES will be recorded and provided in return for a suggested $20 donation towards next years festival.

As far as FOOD is concerned....Please bring enough for at least yourself. There will be a charcoal grill as well as a fire pit available for cooking. Please note that there will be no refrigeration space available, so it is a good idea to bring a cooler and some ice.

**There will be at least one porta-potty provided for your convenience.**(funded completely through donations)

If you plan on attending and even if not, please CONTRIBUTE to our donation fund in order to help ensure proper funds are raised in time for the event. If we do not reach goal, we will not be able to provide everything needed (porta-potties, fencing, etc.). Again, this event is run at cost by the people, for the people. Cash donations can also be made and will be officially accepted by Matt Minue or Collin Bischoff. Suggested donation for daily attendees is $15.00 or more. Suggested donation for campers is $30.00 or more. 
Remember ~> THE OUTCOME RESTS UPON US! This weekend can be as awesome or as disappointing as we choose to make it, so please contribute in any way you can think of because literally ANY CONTRIBUTION WILL HELP IN SOME WAY.

MidKoast Entertainment has an excellent record of successfully producing Cliffstock Art, Music, and Camping Festival over many years. The festival is a complex event but we have the right professional team in place to ensure that every aspect runs smoothly.


Of course, things can go wrong; very occasionally artists are unable to fulfil their performance at the festival due to circumstances beyond anybody's control. In this rare instance we would make alternative arrangements for a replacement performance and/or a rescheduled show.

*If admission capacity is reached at any time we will stop admittance until further notice.
**Cliffstock event grounds are on private property and we, the property owner's, therefore reserve any and all rights to refuse admittance to and/or to eject any individual we find necessary.
