As it's been said, the show must go on. And this is true for Junkstock after recent historic flooding at Sycamore Farms, Junkstock will be temporarily moving to the Sarpy County Fairgrounds until their farm and Dodge Street is fixed up. The turquoise VW bus van will move down the road along with Junkstock: Spring Edition to the Sarpy County Fairgrounds for their April 26-28 show. The fairgrounds is located three miles off of I-80 and just off of Hwy 50 (144th Street) in Springfield, Nebraska. "The flood ravaged our farm," Junkstock Public Relations Director Danelle Schlegelmilch said. "We are blessed to have the opportunity to be able to move our event so quickly. The Sarpy County Fair Board has been amazing to work with, and there's actually a wedding happening here this weekend, too, so we want to thank the bride and groom for sharing their venue with us. It will be a weekend that people won't forget."
This spring marks Junkstock's 18th show and people can expect shopping from more than 150 vintage vendors and makers from across the US, live music, more than 20 food trucks & artisan food vendors, a beer garden, and more. Junkstock: Spring Edition runs Friday, April 26 from 11a.m. to 9 p.m. (early bird 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.), Saturday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, April 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
