Enjoy live music from local favorites and national headliners. The Pine Ridge festival is one of the most unique, and incredibly fun experiences I have ever had!
The Pine Music Ridge Festival is also more than just a music festival. Camping is a huge part of the three-day festival, camp outdoors and enjoy the music and scenery! It is a three-day long festival and primarily outdoors, which is why camping is also an integral part of it.
The festival is never-ending fun, as the main stage goes on till midnight and then there are even more after productions for those who want to keep having fun!
The Origin and History of the Festival
The Pine Ridge Music festival is hosted twice annually (fall and spring) by Common Flame Events. The company was started in 2020, during lockdown to create events for local artists in such a trying time. The co-owners are artists themselves, and were inspired to help out struggling artists.
In the early days of Common Flame, they mostly booked private shows. In late 2021 they decided to open their doors to the public and see their reaction. And today they host annual music festivals!
The owners mentioned how the festival is for everyone, it is a very rock ‘n’ roll core festival but there are also punk, alternative and bluegrass acts as well.
Culture and art are also trivial to this festival. At every festival there is a fire show and has become an attraction of the festival.

Staycation Options for Pine Ridge Festival
As much as I love the outdoors, I personally did not want to spend all three days of the festival camping.
And would recommend that you do the same, of course camping all three days will give you the best experience of the festival but you can always avail the two day pass without camping or spend one night camping and the others in a luxury stay nearby so you are well rested to party the next day!
The venue is quite close to Jim Thorpe, so you can avail a stay in Jim Thorpe. Check out vacation homes in Jim Thorpe. The venue is in Albrightsville, PA which is a 15 minute drive from Jim Thorpe. Check out other vacation homes in Poconos.
All in all, the Pine Ridge music festival is not to be missed! It is an event unique to the Poconos and is overall a great tourist attraction and experience.
