Due to the recent devastating flooding the 132-acre, century-old Sycamore Farms near Waterloo that is home to Junkstock was left covered in inches of mud and thousands of tons of sand when waters receded.
"Without flood insurance this has been devastating to both Junkstock as a business but also our founders family as their farm house also flooded," organizers say.
As it’s been said, the show must go on. And this is true for Junkstock. Next weekend the turquoise VW bus van will move down the road along with Junkstock to a new temporary location at the Sarpy County Fairgrounds in Springfield.
The spring Edition will be April 26-28. "We just want to thank everyone for all they have done for our family and the many families affected in our community,” said Sara Alexander, Junkstock founder. “We are humbled by the continued outpouring of support. We are also overwhelmed with the support of our vendors. They come to Junkstock from all over the country- and none of them have cancelled due to the location change or flooding. Our vendors are like family and are a tough bunch- we’ve been through all kinds of weather together and we feel the love big time that they are all making the move with us.”
The fairgrounds is located three miles off of I-80 and just off of Hwy 50 (144th Street) in Springfield, Nebraska at 100 Main Street
