The inaugural 2014 event was a success. Thanks so much to all of our amazing sponsors, musicians, vendors, volunteers, and festival goers! We had an absolutely fantastic time, and hope you did too. To view images from the event, click here!
Now to throw together the second annual MCF! Sophomore jinx? Nah. We're plowing ahead, full steam, disregarding superstition and probably lacking more than a little common sense! We learned a few lessons about what worked, what didn't work, and what might work if we put forth a little more attention or effort. If you have ideas or suggestions, please use our Contact page and let us know about them!
The dates for the Moccasin Creek Festival are Friday, June 26 through Sunday, June 28, 2015. Mark your calendars. We're going to have a great time, again, and we hope that you'll join us! Check back here often to view any changes, or better yet, hook up with us on Facebook for all the latest MCF news and developments. We'll try to make information available as soon as we possibly can.
Moccasin Creek Festival is an annual 3-day music festival, which typically celebrates other arts and crafts as well. It takes place at beautiful Lake Sara in Summit Township, just west of Effingham, Illinois. The lake was created in the 1950's from five creeks that run through the basin. One of those creeks was named Moccasin Creek by a surveyor named Tipsword in the 1850's, because of moccasin tracks he found on the banks.
The founder of Moccasin Creek Festival is Bill (Poss) Passalacqua, an Effingham native who has built his life around writing, performing and promoting music. The Passalacqua family has a rich musical history, and Bill has three brothers, all of whom are musicians. Each of them have followed in father Larry's musical footsteps. Folk, bluegrass, alternative country, roots rock, and blues - "Americana" music. This is what MCF is all about - in an outdoor setting, using a venue with great acoustics, at a beautiful time of year.
Food and beverages sold on site. Kids activities. Camping is next door to the festival venue, as well as cabins for rent. There is a beach and golf course within walking distance. Boats, canoes and kayaks for rent. Effingham is only 5 miles away, and has thousands of hotel rooms available, as well as a plethora of restaurants catering to almost any taste.
Comb through the website, and check out MCF on Facebook and Twitter. Most answers to your questions can be found here, if not, feel free to contact us. We're looking forward to our sophomore event, and we hope you are too!
