Forkfest 2022: Jun 27th – Jul 3rd

What’s the plan for Forkfest 2022?

Well, it’s Forkfest, which means no one’s in charge, so we can’t tell you what to do. 2020’s Forkfest happened after the Porcupine Freedom Festival (Porcfest) for the first time and given Rogers Campground has been doing fireworks for Independence Day for decades, it seemed a natural fit for Forkfest to happen the week leading up to and through the fireworks.

In 2022, that means Forkfest’s week will be Monday June 27th through Sunday July 3rd, with the park fireworks expected on Saturday July 2nd.

The fireworks are popular, so you should reserve your camping, RV site, or hotel room before the park potentially fills up, since we’ll be sharing space with whoever happens to show up for the fireworks on the weekend. Call Rogers Campground ASAP at 603-788-4885 to lock in your reservation!

What is Forkfest?

Forkfest is the yearly camping party in the woods that began in 2017 at Rogers Campground in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire.  You’re invited to come and create whatever experience you’d like others to have.  No one is in charge and the event is decentralized.  In fact, some people have different names for the event, including Somaliafest, Shirefest, and Banned Camp. It’s up-to-you what happens at Forkfest.
