Festival Experience

This is also much more than a music festival. Other activities include camping; a variety of food vendors with festival favorites such as funnel cake, pretzel braids, ice cream, jerk chicken, and more;  a kids' zone on Saturday (for toddlers through age 11) with games, a bouncy house, face painting plus other fun activities; a petting zoo with adorable free-roaming animals with both large and small; and vendors with a large selection of apparel and merchandise.

Visit the Uprise Fest website to purchase tickets. In addition to general admission tickets, there are special packages and add-ons available including meet and greets, seating upgrades, and seminars.

Make It a Weekend

Enjoy an affordable, family-friendly weekend by camping at the fairgrounds or by staying at one of the nearby Shippensburg hotels. If you are looking to get away from the crowds, head to the nearby Cumberland Valley Rail Trail where you can explore the new Cumberland Valley Railroad Museum at the Shippensburg Station trailhead.
