Just like Woodstock rocked a dairy farm the summer of ’69, Junkstock first rocked an Omaha dairy farm the summer of 2012 with thousands of people coming for the repurposed revival. The farm fresh, family friendly event is back by popular demand June 21-23, 2013.

Junque’ Factory is teaming up with Scout: Dry Goods & Trade, Momaha and Admiral District for the third time to offer Omaha something fun and fresh this summer.

“We have over 60 vintage “Junk” vendors from across the country, 15 live performances by 13 bands, food trucks and a free Kids Zone." said Sara Alexander, owner of Omaha's Junque' Factory and event founder and organizer.

The pet friendly event is $5 at the gate per day or $12 for the whole weekend. Kids 12 and younger are free. The farm is located off of 192nd St., just South of Dodge St. (315 S. 192nd St.) and runs Friday & Saturday from 9 A.M. - 6 P.M. and Sunday from 10 A.M. - 4 P.M. Look for the aquamarine VW bus off of 192nd St.

This is the second year for the bi-annual event. Junkstock: Harvest Edition is slated again for this October 11-13.
